12oz bottle- An aroma of chocolate and more chocolate on a deep brown almost black beer with a big tan head. Taste of chocolate followed by a small vanilla then more chocolate on the back end. Great tasting beer.

Stunningly well done combination of the two best flavors on this planet. Anintoxicating wonderful chocolate aroma, and a smooth pleasant slightly burnt chocolate taste. If you dont think chocolate is a good mix with beer ,then you are obviously not a stout or porter lover,this is better then the uber expensive Sam Adams Chocolate bock or even the Rouge chocolate Stout. Its the last beer of the night , you only drink one of these,and you sip it slowly,I hope Miller comes out with this every year

The first bottle I opened had a strange “chemical “taste. The second is just fine. The Aroma is right on. I could smell this one all day long. Wonderful chocolate aroma, similar to Nestles baking chocolate. The aromas had convinced my scenes that I was in for a big rich brew, but reality is just the opposite. The beer is thin and watery ( like all Miller products ) The chocolate follows though to the pallet for sure, but that is about it, Nothing to complex is going on here, and if it is; the intensity of the chocolate is suppressing it. I personally would have enjoyed this desert porter more of the chocolate use was a bit darker, with some earthy characteristics. As it is now, this is really just a Nestles chocolate bare in bottles.

Okay, so I saw this thing and noticed that the ratings were not all that bad so... listen, it really isn’t a bad tasting brew at all. Lots and lots of chocolate and even some vanilla notes but it is just like eating candy. Unlike most brews that have a chocolate "base" to them, this is sweet chocolate vs a bitter one. Barely drinkable as of the sweetness.

2006 bottle from buckybeer, Thanks! Nose is of Hersheys Syrup (compared to real stuff and it’s close) Clear dark cherry brown with a large tan head; flavor of sweet chocolate and some malt in a medium body. Best Miller product I’ve had but it needs a little hops.

Bottle thanks to buckybeer: Brown with a light tan head. Aroma, very sweet, nestle quick, chocolate milk, maybe some cherries. Flavor, cold milky hot chocolate, thin chocolaty finish.

Thanks to Buckybeer for this one. Pours hazy brownish black with some turbid ruby hints through direct light. The aroma is lovely dark chocolate, ovaltine, Nestle quik. The palate is medium, with a chalky, very chocolatey syrupy flavor. Indeed, this one is very chocolate milky with some figgy fruit as it warms. Stays sweet, with a constant heavy dark chocolate flavor that is very tasty. Wow, I’m going to buy a case of this if I see it, because it will go great with a CAO Maduro cigar!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2007 Courtesy of Buckybeer <P> Big cocoa aroma leans more toward chocolate milk and hot chocolate than chocolat malt. The body is a dark ruddy auburn brown and the head is firm, diminishing and bubbly. Thin lightly tart fore followed by dry cocoa notes in abundance with some mild juicy dark fruit notes int he finish. The finish is better than the fore as it isn’t so dry and forced. Not bad, but not worthy of its current score of 3.6, in my opinion. Though close.

A chocolate lovers dream come true! I stay away from the Miller brand name but the alure of this brew was too strong.A great effort by a macrobrewer to make a decent beer.Best beer ever with the Miller nameplate.I guess big brewers can make a good brew,if they want to!
