3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Black pour with brown head. Aroma is very sweet chocolate with some lighter sweet malt and milk/lactose tones. Not too thick or too thin, and flavor is sweet, chocolate forward and has milk stout tones as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a nice authentic chocolate aroma and flavor. Like a bit of milk chocolate was melted in the glass. But ultimately the palate is light and it is an easy drinking stout. Nice flavors and aromas and nice overall stout but feels like it should have more body for the flavors. Like an imperial stout aroma with a Guinness body. If that makes sense. But ok for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988 from Dumpster Box No. 1. This one says Enjoy By 02/15/2015. Whoopsies. The pour is a thinner light black with a decently light khaki colored cap of head and a little bit of lace. The aroma is nice and chocolatey. There is a nice dusty cocoa powder with a light milkiness. It's different. I like it though. Lots of chocolate milk. The flavor is different. There is a lot of bitter dark chocolate and a little bit of lactose here. It's light and not really complex, but it's decently well done. The mouth feel is light. There isn't a good carbonation to back it up. The aftertaste is different. It's decently dark chocolatey, but it's got an off flavor there that could very well be due to age. It's not bad, but I'd like one of these babies fresh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #1. Enjoy by February 15, 2015. Whoops. Aroma is nice dark chocolate, bread, roasted malt, cocoa, very nice. Appearance is black, light brown head, poured thin. Taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, something slightly off that Iíll attribute to age. Mouthfeel is medium body and carbonation, a great roasty aftertaste lingers, pretty nice. Overall, I think this fresh would be very good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old rating. Chocolate through and through. Bitter more than sweet which I am okay with. Not the best chocobeer, but it works in a pinch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 355ml (from Puerto Rico)
Dark, almost opaque color, small steady beige head. Aroma has strong chocolate and mud cake. Medium-bodied. Dark chocolaty flavor too, mudcake, toasted maltyness. I am not a big fan of these "chocolate beers which taste only chocolate" but well-brewed. Sweet stout with lots of sweetness and low bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottled - very dark in appearance with a reddish tinge to it. Super sweet aroma. Super chocolatey - tastes like chocolate syrup was added.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet dark chocolate aroma. Black body with a light brown head that quickly thins. Dark unsweetened chocolate taste that I canít identify. Roasted malt is more present than the chocolate in the taste. Mildly bitter.
