Draft at ohso, very thin, moderate chocolate. Should have more body for the abv, it’s not bad. Light and inoffensive

Can pours brown/black with a beige head. Aroma is pretty tame with slight roastiness and a hint of underlying chocolate. Flavor shows chocolate and moderate roast (almost ashy). Overall body is much thinner than expected and finishes dry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
With all the hype and "double" in the name, I really expect a huge aroma, a massive head and lots of chocolate. None of the above. The aroma at the pour is minimal; toasty with little more than an unsweetened cocoa smell, backed by some hoppy herbal accents. The head is spectacular for about three minutes and then disappears into minimal khaki swirls on the surface. A small lacing on the glass proves it was there...once.
The body looks light, thin; drops left on the top of the can could easily be Dr. Pepper, (I use it as a reference...my whole office drinks that crap), but for the lack of carbonation. The entire visual is proven in the first swallow, and sipping for the next few minutes proves the deep, rich, dark-caramel color is like a beautifully wrapped Christmas present with socks inside. :-( Boo.
The taste is okay, a little bitter, but mostly just flat sweetness. The carbonation is not even average for this style; mostly flat and this brew is too light-bodied for that to be okay with me. The finish is somewhat bitter, dry, and leaves my mouth feeling as though there must have been at least SOME chalk in that glass with the beer.
Not excited about this and am sad to say that I will not be purchasing this one again. I would give it another try if offered, but only because everyone deserves a second chance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can shared at Kernel. Thanks to the wingman. Mahogany brown / caramel coloured pour with a fleeting creamy head. Aroma is light caramel, faint choc powder, nutty. Flavour is composed of choccy nutty malts, bit of praline, soft choccy roast. Palate is medium light, powdery, highish carbonation. OK.

Can at Kernel tasting thanks to WingmanWillis. Dark brown beer. Lasting tan head. Some chocolate. Bit one dimensional. Nit much finish. Just milk chocolate flavour.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from Total Wine. Dark pour with a tan head. This is a lot like the description given to the cologne in Anchor Man. It’s a little rough for the moderate ABV and the chocolate is pretty thin throughout. Weird.
