4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2006 edition. $5 a four pack at Discount. Dark color. Smell of malt, some hops, Chocolate, caramel, Woppers(malted milk balls), Baileys Irish Cream and a touch of alcohol. Tastes the same but better. Nice chocolate and caramel notes. It tastes better while it warms up. Can taste the malt and sweet chocolate. My God I never would have thought that Miller would ever come up with a beer like this. My wife even likes this and she is not a beer drinker. Great Job Miller!

More like Frederick miller "Snickers" Lager. A surprisingly good beer from such a broad distributor. Great after a meal. Much more than a traditional Chocolate Lager or stout. It actually tastes like they almost melted a chocolate bar into every bottle.

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.

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.

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

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 This is a miller? Extreme chocolate aroma and taste... like hershys syrup.. Chocolate is taken literal with this beer. Yummy yummy beer.. keep it away from the kids. Great fizzy medium body. Chocolate phosphate for sure!

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 2006 edition. We shouldn’t allow an ingrained prejudice against macrobrewers (and megabrewers such as Miller) blind us to accomplishment when it occurs. This is a very fine chocolate beer, which immediately reminded me favorably of Youngs Double Chocolate Stout. I would unquestionably buy this again, and that’s the crucial test. Hats off to Miller for a most enjoyable beer. The correct spelling is "Frederich Miller," by the way.

I saw this at the local beer depot and it caught my my eye. Being a Miller product I was reluctant to try it. As soon as I opened a bottle I smelled a great yeast smell that brought me back to Germany. The first few tastes balance is too sweet, but later the balance is good. I lhave tried many styles of beer and this is something new to me. It is full of flavor with a creamy texture and a great finish. I think this is a beer that is better if it is not too cold. I hope Miller Continues this product!

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.
