4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 This beer is so chocolatey and sweet that it is very nearly a dessert. It is so yummy one might almost not believe it is a beer at all.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma of coco/hot chocolate. Pours a dark brown with a robust foamy mostly diminishing tan head and sticky lacing. The taste follows the nose. Milk chocolate with a slight bitter aftertaste. Medium body and modate carbonation. Light, but creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a nice sipper after a meal. Too chocolately to drink in the middle of the afternoon.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very chocolatey aroma that carries over into the taste. Typical stout notes with a mild coffee undertone. Light in alcohol for a stout, but that adds to its drink-ability. Overall, very nice and would definitely buy again.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Wholefood Markets, Kensington. Opaque very dark brown, lighter at the edges. Nose is very rich syrupy chocolate, vanilla, milky, lactic and something almost medicinal, like cough syrup. Taste is very rich, milky chocolate, cough syrup. On the finish there’s a lot of vanilla and the cough syrup taste. Not sure about this. After a minute there’s quite an unpleasant aftertaste. Roasted malt, milky cough syrup.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from spirits Manahawkin. Pours out black with a small white head. Aroma is of a good deep chocolate brownie mix, cocoa, light roast and more rich chocolate, man this smells good. Taste however is way over the top. Crazy chocolatey sweetness, rich cocoa, syrup, raw brownie mix, light roast and some bitterness. Way too sweet on the taste.

Chocolate bar nose. Large chocolate palate. Like drinking chocolate milk with alcohol. Not for everyone.
