Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Cola like pour with a head that was somewhere between off-white and tan. Light lacing. The aroma was chocolate. Bakers chocolate. The flavor was more chocolate (what’d you expect?) and some roasted malt. The mouthfeel was watery and the carbonation was a tad overactive. Barely got through the bottle. Quirky.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2007
12 oz. bottle (2006) courtesy of Bockyhorsey - Pours a brown color with a half finger thick light tan head that faded pretty quick. Very little lacing. Has a wonderful coco aroma. Flavor is chocolate. Smooth, but watery palate. Light body. This was actually a decent beer. Way to go Miller. Thanks Wendy and Bill.

12oz bottle. pours dark ruby with thin white head. nose smells exactly like a chocolate tootsie roll pop. exactly! flavor again is cloyingly sweet chocolate tootsie roll pop. very watery. i’d rather have a high life.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Pours a deep dark brown, minimal head. Aroma is overwhelming chocolate and bubble gum. Flavor can be described as someone took a Miller and a Hershey bar, melted them together, bottled the concoction and put it in the fridge. Sorry to say this was a drain pour for me.

Pours what looks like Pepsi with a thin head. Aroma of chocolate and malt and taste of the same, which was actually pretty good. A nice surprise from Miller.

(Bottle, 2006 vintage) Pours a cola brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of cocoa and toasted marshmallow. Flavor of chocolate, toasted malt, and vinous. Tasty beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear brown orange color. Head was off white and reduced to a thin film. Smelled and tasted like chocolate cookies and hot chocolate. Sweet and chocolatey. Maybe a bit too much.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours rich brown. Quite interesting aroma of dark chocolate. Lively carbonation. Interesting. Thin on the palate with notes of wheat and chocolate. quite smooth and drinkable. Not too sweet. Decent dessert beer. One of the best SABMiller offerings for sure.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Nice dark brown color. Smells like nestles chocolate syrup with a hint of chocolate. Unfortunately, this beer is all down hill from there. Overly sweet body with horrid grain finish and stale Hershey’s chocolate. Seriously, did they let the gallon jug of Hershey’s sit out in the sun for all of august before brewing this? This is some bad beer. Akevitt may no longer be invited to tastings after suggesting this should be a regular in my fridge. Akevitt just redeemed himself by suggesting that Janet Jackson replace her coffee enema with this concoction.
