can’t remember from where I got it ... - clear and dark reddish-brown beer under a solid and long lasting creamy beige foam; nice lacework; a solid aroma of cocoa; medium-bodied and with some sweetness; finishes gently tart with some chocolatey and earthy tones

Pours chestnut with small head. Dry chocolate aroma. Medium chocolatey mouthfeel with some bitterness and chocolate aftertaste. Kind of weird, but not outright bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber, medium to dark red colored beer with a big, thick vast white head. Don’t smell much chocolate. At first only light hints of chocolate in the taste, but when I left it for awhile a little more chocolate appears. Nice carbo and medium body. Nothing wrong with this beer, pretty nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper with a darker tan head leaving lacing.
Aroma: chocolate, nuts, grass, bitter (as in the beer style).
Taste: lots of milk chocolate, cacao, fruit, quite sweet, low bitterness.
Medium-bodied and smooth.
Feels more like a blend of ale and chocolate than a successful chocolate ale. But not bad.
