2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the mad mex robinson. Big and black pour. Not much choco in the aroma but it is there fer sure. Sweet olfactory. Yes, first taste is like choco liquour. Not over the top like so many choco beers. Cery little detectable co2. Fisnih is not too bad, fairly easy going for a 9% beer. Hides the alky well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, bright red. Pours a really nice jet black color with a medium brown head. The aroma is huge chocolate and lighter roast. The flavor was very nice; oats, lots of honey, roast, loads of milky chocolate. Quite well done, a chocolate bomb with honey and light roast. Darn good.

650ml bottle. Pours an opaque and glossy with a cappuccino head. The nose has milk chocolate, rather than dark and raisins. The taste has chocolate with a burnt toast edge. The palate has big in body with a big creamy texture with a reasonably elegant finish. Overall, a nice beer, though slight reservations with the burnt toast thing.

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. If this beer were a touch less sweet, I could drink it all day long.
