4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Huge chocolate note. An acidity cuts trough giving a fruitiness to the chocolate backbone. Almost like low quality chocolate or so.
A: Pours thin and lackluster but the heat is creamy and very nice. In the glass it looks more bold than during the pour.
T: Taste is identical to the smell. Chocolate is a huge player and the subtle fruitiness comes through. What I like about this beer compared to other chocolate beers is itís a more fruity chocolate than a bitter chocolate (which depends on where you grow your beans (I designed a chocolate factory.....)) Goes down easy.
P: Acidic on the palate but good flavor development. Medium body.
Overall this is a great beer. As mentioned before, this is different than other chocolate beers where it brings a more fruit note than a bitter note. Also nice to see a chocolate beer that is lower ABV. This was killer, and with the medium body this is a beer that beer lovers can love, but probably a good beer to convert people with. A must try.

Big chocolate aroma and taste. Milky notes with a smooth finish. Could use a little more bitterness but a nice stout. Rich dark colour and keeps a good head. Quite light in body but itís all about the chocolate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, may 6th 2016. Black body with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, candy, vanilla, mild roasty. Taste is sweet too, quite strong milk chocolate notes, mild bitter, with a malty and fruity finish, lasting chocolate aftertaste. This beer is all about the choco it seems. Nothing wrong with that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colour with firm, beige and big head. Aroma is sweet coffee with lots of cocoa powder, chocolate, some chocolate cookies and brown sugar. In taste there is strong chocolate flavour, cocoa powder, reminds me of chocolate cookies literally, there is also hint of coffee with milk. Palate is smooth and creamy, low carbonation, medium body. I sense some metallic notes but itís faint note so Iím unsure. Overall nice, BIG on chocolate and smooth, maybe little to... bland, could use some bitterness to counter the sweetness. Other than that very interesting

Deep dark. Oh well, chocolate! Sweet coffee. Light carbonation. Dessert beer. Not too heavy. A week bit single-ended, but still nice.

Good chocolate flavor, though it tends more to more Yoo-Hoo than Ghirardelli.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black and medium-bodied. Very rich chocolate aroma and flavour. Full, yet mild, sweet taste with light bitterness. Overall, a great chocolate stout. Smooth and simple, but the rich chocolate makes it very tasty.
