3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I like this beer. I think I like it better than the MooHoo I had the other night.
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark chestnut color, with ruby hues, and topped with a thin, wispy head that dissipates quickly.
Smell: Remarkable milk chocolate aroma couples nicely with a faint roasted malt scent. It’s enough to drive you to drink, I swear.
Taste: Rich chocolate flavors dominate the palate. Roasted malts, floral hops, flavors of cocoa powder, vanilla bean, and a faint nuttiness help to round the brew out. It’s a sweet beer, but not exceedingly so.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin bodied with a gentle, smooth silkiness.
Drinkability: A unique beer and one that’s very easy to drink.

Nice tasting beer..just a little too sweet for me..Drinking one or two is good..but more than that is a palate wrecker

Bottle - Pours black with a filmy tan head. Nose is pumpernickel bread with chocolate, milk, hazelnut, and a mellow yeastiness. Taste is tons of chocolate, bready malt, vanilla, a bit of spice, and a dry chocolate finish. Medium-thin body with medium carbonation.

Dark brown pour. Small layer of off white bubbles. No staying power and no lacing. Carbonic chocolate nose. Big syrupy chocolate taste with a wort sweetness and taste. Finishes cloyingly.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Deep brown with mahogany edges. Slightly gray tinted, foamy beige head. Aroma of Belgian-style chocolate, semisweet cocoa, faint roast, moderate notes of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, & some mildly creamy nuttiness. Hint of must. Flavor full of sweet dark malts & even sweeter chocolate & chocolate syrup notes. Lots & lots of chocolate. Almost chocolate milky. Creamy undertones with only a hint of balancing roast & faint nuts. Not pulling the vanilla... Maybe it’s just adding a bit of sweetness? Definitely not a bad choice if your options are low. Tasty, but a whole bottle might wear you down with all the chocolate sweetness.

(Bottled) Wow! Completely blown away by this beer. Great rich chocolate flavor that is in perfect balance on my palette - not too much, but not hiding either. This is a sipping beer, but after every sip I kept thinking "wow, this is a great beer!" Shame I can only get it in a seasonal pack!

This was really good. The chocolate was very nice and not overpowering. Smooth and creamy. Nicely done.

Pre-thanksgiving bottle thanks to Eric’s dad. From the bottle, but the bottle looks classy and I imagine it looks all chocolatey. Smells and tastes like chocolate syrup in a cold frothy beverage. Medium+ body, thick chewy syrupy texture. Pretty tasty dessert beer.

Thought I had rated this long ago. I remember being impressed by this beer the first time I had it. Tonight I opened the last of the 2012 Xmas sampler bottles that I had laying around in the fridge. I recall big time chocolate when I had this about a year ago. The chocolate has mellowed now into lots of vanilla. Aroma reminds of circus peanut candy and marshmallows. Taste is sweet vanilla with a touch of cocoa powder. Medium palate. Great stuff.
