3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 650 bomber. Thin Mocha colored Head recedes quickly. Too thin for my liking, (think bath bubbles). chocolate alcohol nose. Thin mouthfeel. Needs more carbonation. Body is appropriately a dark chocolate brown. Taste is okay. Hints of molasses. May appeal to some due the chocolate, but I find it comes off flat. Overall I'm disappointed, this was much better a few years ago.

On draft at the brewery. Brown pour, with a tan head. Lots of chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, and fairly sweet. Not my thing, but Iím sure some people would like it.

Dark and sweet with minimal carbonation. Really good use if the chocolate malt with almost hoppy bitterness. Thick head and light chocolate aroma with a very subtle lingering mocha aftertaste

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a solid black with a cream coloured head. Aroma is of chocolate with a touch of roasted malt. Taste is of cocoa with a slight bitterness. If you like chocolate you should try this beer.

Bottle bought in Vancouver, donít remember where. Pours black with tiny biege head. Aroma: hints of chocolate, milk, alcohol and malt. Subtle. Doesnít taste much. Little bit of carbonation. Mineral feeling. Way too thin. Disappointing, although it may have some potential.

Bottle (650 ml). Shared by BeerGolem, thanks! Gusher. Dark brown with a small brown head and little lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and acidic notes. Taste is very similar, not super expressive. Medium body. A tad watery. Chocolate finish. Short aftertaste. A bit thin and quite boring, but itís not that bad considering the gusher and the acidic presence at first.
