2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big chocolate aroma, malted Whoppers note. Dark pour, creamy thin head. Lots and lots of malty chocolate (whopper candy) flavor, with some bakers chocolate style hints as well. Thick mouth feel with unremarkable carbonation. Interesting beer to taste, wont drink again.

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Nose is chocolate, vanilla notes, cocoa. Taste is super smooth and silky, chocolate, cocoa, sweet goodness. A slight bitterness on the end makes for a perfect balance. I can’t say enough good things about this beer!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This beer is crazy. First thing that comes to mind when drinking this is ’Ice Magic’ chocolate topping. Huge, sweet chocolate. Thick, chocolatey palate. This beer is all about heavy, sweet chocolate flavours. Much more full on chocolate than most other chocolate beers I’ve tried. Wicked brew

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. The beer pours a dark black with a thin gray-ish head that doesn’t last long. Aromatics are sweet vanilla, coffee, milk chocolate, and caramel. Taste is sweet and chocolate-y. There’s also a subtle bitterness to it that just rounds out the flavor to make it reminiscent of a well made cup of coffee blended with hot chocolate.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Aroma has big notes of chocolate syrup, roasted malts, coffee, cola and a slight citrus note. Black hue with a small medium brown head that left OK lace. Flavor is very sweet and heavy bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Overall a very good beer. Very sweet and delicious. Viscous and rich with a big body and great nose. Good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle, shared with friends. I was kind of disappointed by this. Unfortunately they weren’t too impressed either (not huge imp. stout fans), I had to kill most the bottle myself. Pours with a light brown head. Super dark brown color. Good lace. Nice sweet chocolate syrupy taste, but for me the single version delivers more on the straight-up chocolate flavor. This has a bit of booze bite and warmth to it that doesn’t really add anything. Light carbonation, smooth texture. Not bad, but I was expecting much more.
