12 oz bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a small tan head that lacks retention. Nose is like diving into a chocolate syrup. Smells very sweet and delicious. Very chocolate flavor. This almost doesn’t even taste like beer. Very good though. This is the type of beer that can get people into trouble. The body is a little lacking, just a little too thin for me. Overall, this beer is a nice little treat that if got or get a chance to have, you should check it out. My bottle was aged one year and stood the test of time just fine (proper handling permitting).

Brown with a tan head. Aroma of cocoa and sweet malts. Taste is overpowered by the cocoa and isn’t balanced out very well. Subtle notes of coffee exist but it’s just a bit too sweet for me.

Hm...not so sure about this shabby attempt from Miller. Pours a dark brown colour with a medium sized tan head. hint of cocoa aroma and chocolate milk. roasted malt flavors and maybe some coffee. Still undercarbonated and watered down.

2006 edition bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish tint and a beige soapy head. Nose reminds me of fake easter chocolate - cadebury cream eggs and those colorful ones that are all malty inside. Watery body. Sweet easter sugars. Chocolate a little grainy. But so much of that sweet fake sugar. My hopes were low, but this actually exceded them. Way to go Fred!

Dark, ruddy brown body with a light off white head. Cocoa dominates the nose with some peanuts. Not much else in the simple nose. The taste has some strong chocolate flavored candy with some almonds. This is very one dimensional, and it’s not a bad thing in this case. A decent, candy type chocolate beer that I would like to give ot people to show the possibility of different beer flavorings. Surprisingly decent.

Appearance: Pours a clear, thinnish dark brown body. As for the head, well, no amount of swirling can seem to coax more than a few bubbles out of this beer. Smell: Tootsie Rolls! Taste: More Tootsie Rolls, but without all those God-forsaken wrappers and all that pesky chewing (what a chore)! All in all, a toothsome sweetness that’s cloying to the point that I had to wash (and re-wash) the glass to get the smell and taste out. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Very mild carbonation. Drinkability: How many sips will it take for me to reach the bottom of my glass? Let’s find out. One, two-hoo, three. Three!

Miller. What the hell is this? I am impressed with your awareness that there is something else other than bland nothingness to beer. This has a light body with a very chocolaty taste. Lightly hopped and a little too sugary for my taste. If Miller put in some time to perfect this one a little more, they could have something that could move their company from crap to slightly better than crap.

Bottle from Bockyhorsey. Pours a dark brown-black color, decent initial head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma is strong sweet candy-like chocolate, not much else. The flavor is like a pale lager doused with hershey’s chocolate syrup, sugary, milky chocolate. Utterly unpleasant, although it certainly carried a degree of curious anticipation. Mouhtfeel was flat to lightly carbonated, not sticky sweet, though, more of a cocoa, grainy type of body. Thanks for the opportunity, Bill and Wendy!

Had this beer on 6/6/2007. Aroma has a light coco scent . Color solid amber with good carbonation and a nice tight head. Taste is chocolaty and sweet. Starting with medium body that goes down smooth and a sweet taste coming on. Then the finish comes in with a bold coco flavor, some mild malt tones and is balanced out with a faint bitter feel. This is the best chocolate beer I have ever had and one of the best beers ever.
