Dark brown color,small tan head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma is FUNk and chocolate with a slight cold coffeeish smell,maybe ameretto-ish too.The flavor is better then i thought it was going to be,Malted milk ball flavor all the way,with a sweet side in the beginning and middle that later changes to a more mild bitter sweet malted milk ball sort of thing.I hate to say it but i kind of like ths alco- pop.I use the term alco-pop because it has a sort of yoohoo quality to it.I have to give them a few points for this one just for the effort even if it is a lame way to make a brew...lots of sweet chocolate taste,i mean who can say NO to alot of chocolate,i know i can’t.

Shared by Sliffy. Perfect chocolate aroma--seriously--the aroma is off the hook. Dark brown in appearance. Medium palate. The taste is pure chocolate--just like Hershey’s chocoalate syrup in the flavor. Very interesting for sure.

12 oz. bottle. Dark brown colour, mostly diminishing tan head. Surprisingly rich dark chocolate aroma. Chocolate flavours are much more subtle than the aroma, with some graininess. Light bodied, smooth. I must say, a pretty good effort from Miller.

Had this one bottled from the Binny’s Oktoberfest beertasting in St. Charles, Illinois. This was QUITE a surprise. Light in color, very dense chocolate aromas with lots of vanilla and sweet bread. This was delicious!

12 oz Bottle that the Mother in law sent me. Three different chocolate aroma. Powder coco mix to start with, liquid chocolate in middle and chocolate coffee on the finish. Brown body with red hue and small tan head that goes flat fast. Flavor is sweet chocolate that has a slight bitterness. Smooth actually intriging beer to drink.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Cola brown pour, creamy off-white head. Took one whiff and then took the Lord’s name in vane because of all the chocolate and the fact that this is Miller. Smells like sweet tropical coconuty chocolate, maybe some home-made Baileys Irish Cream with too much chocolate and almond oil. Taste is a little odd. Sweet chocolate followed by dry snow. Thick with chocolate and a spicy herbal hint. But at the same time, basic malty lager. Pleasing flavor that is easily overdone.

Translucent amber-mahogany in color with a tight hairline white lace wrung. Chocolate abounds in the nose: fudgie brownies, chocolate chip Tollhouse cookies sitting in a pool of caramel, dense chocolate fudge with milk chocolate chips… the chocolaty list goes on. Interesting herb flavor semblance intercedes the chocolate at first sip. Coppery chocolate teams with an iced chocolate mocha cooler trait (avec ice and the ensuing meltdown.) Effervescence is midline while the milk chocolate traits are populated by dry hot chocolate power mix. The effervescence hurts and is unnaturally intrusive. Chalky talc-esque chocolate toffee nougats make a name for themselves at the end of each sip. Well-balanced (save the eff), with a humming milk chocolate simplicity. It’d easily please the populace, and it makes said rater moderately happy. Thanks, John!

very good beer. You will taste the chocolate. This beer probably isnt for a heavy night of drinking but as a nice treat to start or cap off a night.

Bottle shared by sliffy, thanks! This one pours a dark ruby/brown with a white head. The aroma wasn’t bad, some coffee beans, chocolate milk, vanilla, and a bit of funk...which seemed a bit out of place. The flavor was a little different...somewhat like diluted chocolate milk powder and some vanilla. The body was pretty thin with a somewhat dry finish. For a miller product this a pretty damn good, though matched up against every other brew that has chocolate elements this one feels thin and the chocolate flavor feels more forced than anything else.

brown pour small tan head. Smells like chocolate extract & grain. Avg pal. Blend of chocolate flavors crappy grains bland. Not very good.
