Poured from a 550ml bottle. Very sweet and confection like. Chocolaty, malty, coconut, nutty. This is not very drinkable. Not really liking this one.

Challenging to get through this bomber, basically a carbonated version of Nestlé quik, very thin bodied, cloyingly sweet, over carbonated, no warming alcohol, no malt no hops, no dice!

chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, roasty-toasty chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, coffee, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, You get the point. This poured from the bottle and was transformed into a perfectly nice cold chocolate beverage. There are no noticeable hops in this that I can detect. Not a hint of alcohol anywhere to be found, a touch of vanilla in the finish but that is it. Thick and creamy mouth feel. I am not one for flavored beverages but I will have another one of these.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black with a thick foamy light khaki head. Lovely chocolaty sweet aroma that is reminiscent of chocolate chip cookies with a touch of vanilla. Flavor is really dang nice as well. Not too syrupy or cloying, but just the right amount of sweetness. Lovely milk chocolate and cocoa sweetness with just a touch of vanilla, and light smokey bitterness, all comes off really well. Smooth and creamy. Just a ’wow’ beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark with a brown head. Aroma is breast malts, toast, chocolate, earthy, lactose. Medium bodied but if it was a bit fuller it would marry with the flavor a bit better. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, bread, earthy, cocoa powder. Very enjoyable, very chocolatey, and a good dessert beer. Best to share a bottle with someone as it can get hard to finish the whole thing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a large, dark tan head.
Aroma is cocoa, rich and creamy.
I, too, agree that it smells like Nestle Qwik....
Taste is creamy, powdery chocolate...
Strong flavour but way overdone......a good dessert.

(Bottle). This is an outstanding chocolate stout. Pours a mahogany complexion with thick tan head. Aroma of mild milk chocolate. The flavor is deep chocolate without without being overly sweet or sticky. Very well balanced. Pallet is smooth and creamy. The best I’ve had from this Brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

18.7 oz. bottle- Pours mostly black with red highlights and a thin tan head that leaves a blanket. Aroma is decadent chocolate, very rich and tasty. The taste is velvety smooth chocolate, very nice, it has that mineral quality that all Sam Smith beers have, just kick ass chocolate! I loved this beer, not overly complex, but damn it is tasty, it is what you want in a chocolate beer!
