3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the embossed 330 ml. bottle. Medium amber pour with a fluffy, cream colored head and considerable lacing. British malts have this distinction that I rarely see copied in the US. I get that distinction on the aroma as well as a cocoa note. Sweetness. The body is about medium. Decent pale malt flavor with a more mild chocolate base and again mild bitter finish. A decent enough pub beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Tallinn, dark amber/reddish brown colour. small mostly vanishing off-white frothy head, fair lacing. Moderately malty roasty aroma of milk chocolate and molasses with a hint of coffee and light resiny hops. Taste is initially quite balanced and a bit acidic, bittersweet finish with a lightly acetic feel. Medium to full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Really pleasant and strong chocolate aroma without being overly sweet, quite a nice ale. Would’ve been downright brilliant if there was a bit more depth in the malt and hop profile.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz custom Old Tom brown glass bottle pours with a clear amber to ruby red body that supports a somewhat loose weak tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, caramel malts, brown sugar and a dash of chocolate. The taste begins sweet with malts, a brown sugar like note and some caramel malts. Toward midway a pleasing and firm chocolatey goodness surfaces and basically takes over the flavor save for a slight rootbeer soda sensation. Pretty nice stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Negra, con una espuma poco persistente. Aroma a café y cacao, sabor entre el dulce de la malta tostada y el ligero anargo del chocolate, un poco a licor, se nota el alcohol aunque no tiene muchos grados. Está muy rica aunque es un poco cansina.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Usually I’m apathetic to chocolate and other sweets, and I tried this one just because of the sales.
But hell, it’s good!
It’s not sweet, it’s not oversatrated with the chocolate flavour, thought the aroma is obvious and clear.
You can’t drink much of it, but you can have at least once, when you have some.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer and Wine - 11.2 oz bottle. Hazy light amber brown pour, sticky, off-white head. Aroma has some odd soapy accents, a touch of prunes and molasses. Soapy essence permeates the flavor as well. Some chocolate makes it way through - but it is odd and tart. Some molasses and dates in the back end. Mouthfeel is off. Not a memorable drinking experience.
