Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Dark brown body with a frothy off white head. Woody aroma, almost lambic like, some dark fruits and malts. Very woody flavor, very refreshing. Very nice one.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2004
Very intens dark brown beer with an acajou red glow and almost no head. It has a warm and powerfull nose with hints of dates, dried figs, dried apricots, expresso coffee and ahorn sirup. This blockbusterbeer has a dens mouthfeeling with hints of Irish coffee and old Tréffin candy’s ( Butter caramels with coffee taste.) In the afthertaste you can notice a touch of black bitter chocolate. Overpowering beer that lacks some frechness in the end. Heavy stuff.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2004
Sampled in a beer tasting at Plan B, Copenhagen. Magnificent head on a fine brown colour. Dark fruits, malts and chocolate. Alcohol is noticeable. Great with foods and chocolate (I presume).

zathrus13 (1716) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Dark brown, with a long lasting tan head. Aromas include hops, dark fruit, malt, and some chocolate. Flavor is dark fruit, some coffee, some chocolate that start on the sweet side, but ends dry. The aftertaste has some grape flavor. Very complex. Thanks to BeanDip for this one.

cquiroga (371) - Tujunga, California, USA - AUG 29, 2004
8/28/04. Poured out of 750 mL bottle, sampled at Dr. Bill and Steiny’s 8th Annual 12-Hour Beer Festival in Orange, CA 8/28/04. Pours a moderately dark brown, somewhat like a porter. But excellent lacing from a tan head that fights and kicks to stay alive. Nose has faint unsweetened chocolate and dried dark fruit hints. Flavor gives off a bit of a sharply bitter, drying sensation. Quite a surprising chocolate beer, in that there’s really not a whole lot of chocolate. But I bet it would go excellently WITH chocolate, as it sort of posits an apparition of a cocoa presence. Some big wood evident, and the dry yet round, full mouthfeel is very lovely. Damn good.

SpringsLicker (3133) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Thanks to fattyre for bringing this to the Georgia 14% gathering! There’s a large, light Mocha colored head on this beer that sits on a dark amber colored base. Light malt aroma and the aroma and flavor of old apples. Tha palate is oily and alcoholic with a slightly sour finish. No chocolate anywhere.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2004
The dark reddish brown body is topped by an appropriate light tan head. The aroma has a good bit of fruitiness and a little spice, but the chocolate, while there, really isn’t there enough to justify the American name for this beer. This one seemed a little lacking compared to beers that came before and after it at the tasting. I’m wondering if our bottle just wasn’t as good as the bottles some of the other raters here have had.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Oh here this beer is! What a scavenger hunt to locate this one in the database. Reddish brown apperance. The aroma was very sweet consisting mostly of chocolate. The taste was a sweet and sour combo of chocolate, sour grapes, and some bitter coffee. This one wasn’t great but good nonetheless.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2004
Comes off fairly piney up front. Some chocolate in the aroma. Deep red-brown body. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation.
