Black, opaque. Good smell, like warm toffee, matches the style. I’m not huge on chocolate beers, but this is one of the ones I’d buy again. The chocolate taste is present but not overpowering. Sam Smith’s scores again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottles from Capone’s and Wegman’s. Pours hazy dark blackish with 1-finger frothy tan head. Nose is strong dark chocolate, cacao, chocolate syrup, Tastes of cacao, ovaltine, chocolate powder mix, some creamy lactic notes. Palate is a bit wayery, but has a pretty smooth finish, and a beer that is on the sweet side, so it would pair well with something like German chocolate cake.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dec 2012 - bottle. Big beige foamy head, almost spongey. Taste is primarily sweet chocolate syrup with a bit of watery stout. Very sweet in comparison to most stouts you’ll get. There is quite a lot of chocolate flavour, but it is quite artificial tasting.

From bottle, black pour with tan head small bubbles. Aroma of milk chocolate and light roast malts. Strong aroma and very inviting. Taste very milk chocolate with small bubble carbonation. Hints of coffee and roasted grains but mainly milk chocolate, maybe a bit of bitter chocolate. Good mouth feel, easy to drink, very enjoyable beer.

Black pour with a frothy tan head. Big delicious sweet milk chocolate aroma along with raisinettes candy, touches of vanilla and Herseys syrup. Flavor is sweet chocolate chip cookies with the bread dryness, light roast and coffee. Light bubbly bodied with a dry end. Pretty damn tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours a very dark brown color with a foamy, light brown head. The aroma is sweet with chocolate and malt. The taste is robust and fairly light from lots of carbonation. It finishes very sweet leaving a lingering chocolate taste. This certainly leaves a different taste than beers brewed with cocoa. Overall, this was a pretty good desert style stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
550ml bottle. Pours black with large tan head that settles slowly. Aromas of dark chocolate milk. Flavors of rich dark chocolate with more of an underlying full stout feel and taste. Very smooth and slick. It really is a chocolate drink with alcohol. Really liked this.
