bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Weird aromas of chocolate and ? Nice mahogany color with a beige/tan head that rapidly ringed. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is chocolate, but a strange chocolate. I remember this from my childhood, but I can’t remember where I had it. Hersheys powder from the can? There seems to be some roasted malt to go with the chocolate. It’s mildly sweet, but with the chocolate it is really a bit astringent. This is a mixed brew, neither this nor that. Finish is chocolate, malt, and fairly dry. A real challenge to the lager non-lover. Why couldn’t they do this with a porter? Interesting, though. Another step out of the box for AB. It really does seem to improve with time and warming.

Tmoney99 (10666) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle. Poured brown color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate chocote and nuts aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Heavy sweet flavor with a sweet short finish. Not my style.

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2006
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of chocolate, carmel and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of tootsie roll, light carmel and a hint of vanilla with a smooth bittersweet finish.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2008
FAIL. Macro brew trying to act like micro brew. No sir, not gonna happen. Sorry. Too sweet, balance is off. Bottle shape is pretty cool.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Poured a medium brownish color with a very small sized off white head. Aromas chocolate (as expected) and some roast. Tastes of chocolate, roast, light caramel, and light vanilla. Thin and watery body. Only thing cool about this one was the bullet shaped bottle.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Ruby brown pour with aroma of slight ovaltine, slight cabernet, hopcit. Tastes watery, with some slight caramel malt and subdued chocolate, but it ends up tasting like rice dipped in a diluted chocolate syrup. Not horrible, but don’t pay the 10 bucks for this bottle, please! Buy a Dreadnaught instead!!!!!!!

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Another gem via a trade with daknole ;). 2007 Bottle. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of dirt, fudge and dry bread. Taste is light smoke, milk chocolate and dryness. Not Great.

marcus (6499) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 24, 2008
This dark brown lager poured with a thin beige head. There is a blatant chocolate flavor over a rather thin roasted malt base, and a long dry finish. I give A-B credit for producing something a step above their standard atrocities, but they’ve got a long way to go.
