4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Florida served in a goblet.
This is a classic dessert beer. Itís sweet but not cloying, with a very strong influence of cocoa nibs and moderate vanilla bean. The aroma features cocoa, subtle vanilla, dark bread, and a hint of coffee.
Overall: Good balance, lots of flavor and an enticing aroma. Worth seeking out.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the "Post Beer Week Bottle Share" on 06/06/16. Pours a dark brown color with a medium creamy tan head that dissipates steadily to a dense film. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Light to medium body with flavors of roasted malt, cocoa and vanilla coffee. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours with a huge amount of carbonation. The aroma and flavor are both muted. I did not expect this beer to be delicate. There are the chocolate notes, and creamy porter notes. The body is thin. I think this may have had an infection/wild yeast.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home, thanks to homer321. Pours a deep brown / black appearance with a lasting dark brown head. Aroma has chocolate, caramel, fudge, light coffee, vanilla, and a hint of green pepper. Fairly high carbonation. Moderate to moderate plus sweetness. Moderate low bitterness. Fairly well balanced. Plenty of chocolate and dessert notes in the flavor. Pretty good though the carbonation seems to be a little too strong (and no notes of green pepper in the flavor). Fine.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with thin tan head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma of big chocolate notes, like milk chocolate, straight up. Taste follows, insanely chocolate milk. How much cocoa nib do they use, really insane. Coating mouth, mild carbonation, nice stuff for dessert or night cap.
