4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Dark brown with a brief, lacy tan head. Incredible aroma of dark chocolate and cocoa. Full bodied with a bright citrus tang. Taste starts with bittersweet chocolate and lime zest. Gets hot fudgy, carob coming in then grassy with pine. Dry finish with some mocha. Dripping with chocolate goodness but you still know you’re drinking a beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle via a trade with Americanbrew. Shared with the Dallas Crew. Pours with a deep black body and a fading tan head. Body coats the glass when swirled. Smell is very much like ST’s Chokolat. Tons of milk chocolate, Hershey’s syrup, sugar and cocoa butter. Taste is not as good or as strong as the aroma had portrayed. Seltzer water mixed with cold "hot chocolate" and not much else. A bit of bitter chocolate on the back head. A bit too lively carbonation and a bit too dry for the style in my humble opinion. Very low in residual sweetness for a chocolate impy stout.
