3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle picked up in Ephrata, WA. Enjoying after a long day of travel in a hotel. Really hits the spot. Expecting a CDA, so the chocolaty sweetness was a nice surprise. Black body with instant beige foamy head, fades to nothing. Sweet chocolate aroma, taste also. Slick medium wright, just delicious through and through.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. A big sweet vanilla and chocolate nose. The flavor is big chocolate, toast, vanilla, brown sugar. Solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewpub.
A: Pitch black in color, creme color head, light lacing.
N: Coconut, chocolate, some vanilla, and a host of cake batter.
T: Big sweetness, no bitterness. Not cloying, fortunately.
M: Medium body, soft carbonation, no alcohol.
O: I wish this was more complex, but I get that if it were, it wouldn’t be a dead ringer for German Chocolate Cake. I can dig it, even if I really don’t want more.

Wat een lekkere kruidenbier. Toch wel het beste bier dat ik gedronken heb van de brouwerij.

Draft - Lots of coconuts and chocolate, think Bounty Bar. Jet black with a thin white head. As it smells, really nice.

On tap at icicle pub Leavenworth. Pours out dark brown almost black with some ruby highlights topped with a tan head. Nose is almond joy or in this case I guess German chocolate cake. Tons of coconut milk chocolate vanilla and a nice sweetness. Taste is like the nose tons of coconut milk chocolate vanilla. Wow for sure this is a German chocolate cake. Very well done.

Black color. Aroma of chocolate and coconut. The flavor is dominated by the chocolate and coconut, rich but not sweet, with bold bitterness; roasted nuts in the final.
Another very clean and interesting beer from Icicle.
2015-01-03, draught at Happy’s Market, Ellensburg, WA, 7-4-7-4-15=37
The color is almost black. A lot of real chocolate, but in beer it tends to get a cheap turn, moderately sweet, smooth.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Waddell’s, our third brewpub stop on TvM’s Bachelor Party NW Ale Trail Expedition. Guest tap. Dark brown with golden Amber highlights. Aroma of dark chocolate, caramel, and vague coconut. Flavour is the same, but lacking body. The more I sipped of this, the less it appealed to me, kind of fake tasting like a Starbucks syrup but less sweet. Just ok to me.

22oz bottle shared by Andrew at tasting. This was definitely as advertised, end of flavor and aftertaste came off as rich delicious chocolate cake. On top of that there is no residual sweetness or Southern Tier like over the top sweetness. Its just those chocolate cake flavors without sugar. How did they do this? Artificial flavors?
