Dark brown appearance, clearer near the bottom, more mahogany/crimson-hued there, as well,...a decent head starts it off, then slims away to nil. Aroma: cocoa powder, think Swiss Miss, or NEstle Quick, ...and thatís it. Taste: chocolatey, for the first sip, lingering to the middle of the tongue, rising to the roof of the mouth, staying, but not terrible impressive, considering the weakness of the body. A little slick and syrupy, some maple slipping in... Tastes good, actually, and doesnít taste like a Miller product, much to my surprise. Solid cocoa flavor, extraordinarily drinkable. Inoffensive, but turns oddly sour and bitter near the middle, though. I have the one bottle given by a friend, and I could have a few in a row, but not much more, I think I would quickly tire of it. In short, this oneís like a frosty chocolate milkshake, but with booze!

Iím scared. Iím actually enjoying a Miller product. While I canít say this is anywhere near the best chocolate beer Iíve ever had, Iím pleasantly surprised by the fact this doesnít taste as rushed and half-assed as I was expecting. You can still tell itís obviously a Miller lager, but the chocolate hits right up front and reminds me of Ghirardelli. Nice aroma, but still has the Miller undertones which Iím not a fan of. Foamy head receded quickly, but thatís typical, and Iím digginí the fact it doesnít have the usual Miller-y aftertaste. Shockingly (to me) I wouldnít mind drinking this again.

Clear brown body. Roasty chocolate extract aroma - dead-on chocolate. The flavor is a weak dark lager with lots of chocolate extract thrown on top. A good novelty beer.

larryg (8) - chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2006 does not count
i can see how this won an award,but im not sure id call it an autumn beer.seems more like a specialty beer.it does have rich chocolate flavors and colors without being too sweet and not bitter either.i think 2 per sitting session would be my limit on this blend.id say this is a medium body with active carbination, pours a nice foam but it breaks down pretty quickly.reminds me of canfields chocolate fudge pop that was big about 25 years ago.if ur loooking for hops look elsewhere. could be a tad richer, maybe a litttle oatmeal?smells great!

Surpise from Miller beer. Dark brown color with small off white head. Aroma and taste of chocolate its like eating a fudgesicle.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 2, 2006
12 oz bottle at Kyleís "This Is Not A Beer Tasting" beer tasting. Wow, this doesnít suck! Clear brown with a beige head. Milk chocolate nose, like Hersheyís chocolate milk. Flavor is chocolatey along the lines of a Fudgesicle. A tad thin in the body - does not match the rich chocolate flavor. Very pleasant, sweet chocolate experience.

Wow, for a Miller beer, this is actually pretty good. Taste like chocolate, which is never a bad thing, even for a beer. Glad I picked this up.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Rich delicious aroma with lots of chocolate malt and vanilla. Looks like a coke but with a very nice white frothy head. Flavor is very chocolaty with tones of sweet vanilla and coffee. Fairly bitter, could be smoother. Very thin mouthfeel, which I guess is expected from a wheat lager, but a thicker silkier beer would complement the flavors much more. Not bad, the flavor could be realy good in a stout, but is just decent in this beer.

Bottle thanks to buckybeer. Cola color with small tan head. Smelled of bitter chocolate and a little coffee. Taste began with chocolate malts which quickly gave way to overpowering chocolate chocolate. Maybe if your a macro, you feel the need to go big. But thereís way too much chocolate in this.
