Thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing this. Pretty interesting ale - aroma is chocolate and metal. The flavor was similar, with a strong metallic taste that didn’t work with us. Palate was thin and watery, making for a rather uninteresting beer. Worth a try though.

Bottle from Shoreline Liquor Shared with Bartzilla and Naven. Pours black with a 1 finger creamy light brown head. Nose is rich chocolate with some robust malts. Taste was a little metallic and it was difficult to get beyond that metallic taste. Besides the metallicness the choclate was nice, the palate was a little thin but overall not terrible. Hope the metal was just this bottle.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago. Apperance is a hazy, very dark brown color with tan head. I got a very strong smoked turkey aroma that no one else seemed to get with chocolate powder and some sweet malt. The flavor was like eating a spoonful of cocoa powder with malt bitterness and grain, it was semi-sweet but very strange. Body was medium to full and nicely carbonated. A little too much going on, I am glad i was able to share it.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (sourish cocoa powder, chocolate milk, roasted grain), with a hint of sour cherry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Not that pleasant; cheap-smelling chocolate (like stale Hershey’s), not much else going on, and a weird aftertaste. Appearance and mouthfeel are the only good aspects.

malrubius (1639) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2007
750 ml split in Duvel glass. Black with lasting flat brown head and lace. Chocolate, port, and earthy aroma with hint of must. Dark chocolate, port flavor with very slight raisin fruitiness and bittersweet finish. Surprisingly dry fast finish. Medium body medium carbonation. Very nice but less complex and indulgent than expected.

A little disappointed actually in this brew from one of my favorite breweries. This is probablly just my palate...dry cocoa NOT SWEET CHOCOLATE fills every sip, well made, but less dense (thick) then I expected, no real yeast flavoring either....Hawksfan17 said this beer is "a little over rated." I agree.

Poured black with a tan head. Light aroma of some chocolate and coffee. Light flavor of chocolate, coffee, and some fruit. Almost watery.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Pours dark brown with a mocha top. Aroma is of dark malts, very bready. The flavor is roasted, chocolate, then coffee. It wasn’t bad but I think it is a little over rated.

Dark spicy malt aroma. Very dark amber color with a small brown head. Slightly sweet beginning with a mild coffee bitter finish.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2007
A 750ml bottle shared by Brewfiend at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick and lumpy light tan head that barely goes away. Some very stick and excellent lacing. Aroma of dark baker’s chocolate, dark malt and dark roasted coffee. Taste is full bodied, very little carbonation, thick and chewy with flavors of dark chocolate a touch of vanilla and some dry dark malt. Finish is creamy and chocolately with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. One of the better chocolate beers I’ve tried.
