4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
aroma: chocolate, right away. yoohoo, light cocoa, estery, chocolate milk. nearly opaque brown with a thick rocky off-white head. mild cocoa notes, though dominant. gentle sweetness that fades to light cocoa flavor. smooth and creamy. yoohoo/light cocoa flavor from start to finish to aftertaste. no bitterness seems to puncture the sweet cocoa characteristics of this smooth, soft, gentle ale.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Likened to chocolatey root beer, a great aroma of chocolate but a sweeter body with heavy sarsaparilla notes.

This is beer? None more chocolatey, at least that Iíve tried. Makes a great beer float.

So dark you canít see through it. Sweet nose, chocolate predominates. Nice tan head that stands up. Thick, almost chewy. Velvety. Taste of liquid marshmallow,almost like a smore. Wow, couldnít drik more than one, but a nice change of pace.

12oz bottle. Great aroma. Dark pour with a tan 2 finger head. Crazy cocoa flavor and long aftertaste. Very slow drinking beer. Very sweet half way through. Great sitting by a fire beer.

550ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish black with a half inch tan head. Taste is of chocolate, smoke, roasted malt, caramel, milk and vanilla. Similar aroma. Has a nice full body. Mostly clean aroma. Flavorful and quite enjoyable. Well worth picking up again.

12 oz bottle. Dark brown with beige foam. Nose is chocolate malted, nutmeg, caramel and vanilla. Medium body with sudsy carb and a lingering roasty bite.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, moderate frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Sweet buttery cocoa or chocolate aroma.   Yeah, a slight banana boat sunscreen with cocoa.   Not that I like drinking
sunscreen, its actually quite appealing in the aroma.   Less sunscreen on the tongue, moreso a wonderful sweet buttery cocoa and chocolate combination.   Hard to believe this is beer because its so sweet, buttery, and chocolate
like.   Smooth, body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Finishes sweet, chocolate, froofoo coffee like, with huge buttery accents.   Seems fake as all hell, and not a beer at all, but its so different and so much more
chocolate like than anything else (cept maybe the Darkness chocolate milkshake), that I need to give it the props it deserves.   Yeah, I enjoyed it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Some Sam Smith is utter crap,
but this keeps me coming back to see what else they are doing.   Very nice!   This is like a chocolate milk beershake.   I love it!!!
