I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through bloviating. :)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Approximately 5 oz. pour from a 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-23-14. Strong aroma features scents of milk chocolate candy bar, Cadbury Egg (chocolate and cream), and malted milk balls. A bit of an artificial, Tootsie Roll-like smell. Pours dark brown with a moderate amount of light tan head and good lacing. Flavor of chocolate with a surprising hint of sour lemon and some bitterness. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Totally unremarkable and forgettable palate effects. I was hoping for better, but it’s certainly far from offensive.

This was a really nice sweet stout. I have had some that are too much like chocolate milk, but this really balanced it well with its dark malt and coffee flavours. Nice creamy mouth feel, with no real bitterness to speak off, then finishes nice and sweet.

Very rich initial chocolate taste and great stout aftertaste. It reminds me of Decadent from Atwater, not sure which is better.

Dark black body, kind of thin, foamy brown head, pours like cola. Also has a touch of cola in the aroma, very milk chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate and berries, maybe even cherries. Palate is a bit thin. Overall a pretty nice beer.

This is fantastic. Beautiful dark pour with off white creamy head. Aromas are fresh milk chocolate, vanilla and everything good in life. Flavors are milk chocolate, semi sweet chocolate, cherries, cream soda. Wonderful!

Aroma was very enticing for a chocolate beer lover, but the taste was just a little thin. Enjoyed the floral and caramel tones under the chocolate.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: 355mL brown bottle with no freshness date anywhere, served in a snifter.
Appearance: Pours a deep black color, no light shines through the glass. There’s a one finger,
tan colored head and some very good lacing that covers the whole glass.
Smell: Primary scents are of dark chocolate and roasted malt. There’s also some burnt bread notes and hint of molasses.
Taste: Dark chocolate is dominant with some roasted malt in the background and a black coffee flavor as well.
Mouthfeel: It’s very smooth and easy to drink with low carbonation. It feels a bit light bodied and refreshing even, which is unexpected for a stout.
Overall: A very well crafted beer that is very approachable. Popular belief is that non-beer drinkers should start out with lighter colored and less flavorful brews. This beer shatters that stereotype with its drinkability and sweet chocolatey taste. It is actually a best seller in a lot of places down here in Puerto Rico.
