Bottle. Smells like chocolate. Pours dark brown with a finger thick tan head. Tastes like chocolate, with a faint hint of coffee. Goes down smooth. Might be a little too sweet. Would gladly drink again.

Shag (2647) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2015
A dark brown appearance with a beige head. The aroma contains milk chocolate and vanilla. The flavor is dominated by chocolate with some cola like flavor in there also. The aftertaste is sweet and slightly bitter. Overall its one dimensional for sure. You struggle to get anything but chocolate out of this but hey its not bad at all.

nick76 (4280) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2015
The aroma is like chocolate milk with macro malt/wheat underneath. The appearance is brown. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall OK for a seasonal.

Ericular (705) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours an opaque black with quickly fading brown head and slight ring of lace. Aroma is milk chocolate or cold cocoa. Seems a little artificial, but with how sweet this is, it’s not hard to like it. Taste is similar, with an easy-going, low-quality chocolate feel to it. Little malt background, ending in a malty chocolate taste with a slight hint of roast in the aftertaste. Not complex by any means, palate is thin, taste is gentle and fleeting. That said, it exceeded my expectations, stays laid back, is drinkable with nothing offensive. Not that bad, really.

Augdraught1981 (133) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Pours an opaque, super dark brown almost black with a healthy tan head that slowly disappears. Chocolate, almost stout like aroma. Wonderful flavors of chocolate, very light roast, grape? and cheerwine cola. Very soda like with hints of sweet stout flavors.

csaso (1497) - Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle - unable to pour out of bottle to look at, VERY chocolatey aroma and flavor, almost too much for me, and not the high quality chocolate, malty backbone, mildly velvety finish - OK for what it is I guess, but there are much better chocolate beers out there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BroSpud (1755) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2015
12oz screwtop bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Big vanilla aroma. Tastes more like soda than beer, maybe a Yoohoo for example.It’s actually not that bad but I do prefer beer to soda so probably will not be drinking any more of these. Plus I see on the label there are artificial flavors added to which I say, screw that.

JonnyMadison (53) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle. Reminds me of flat root beer with chocolate ice cream. Not bad tasting, but would rather have a good chocolate porter or stout. The artificial sweeteners make it taste like soda not a beer.

radagast83 (5187) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2015
12oz bottle. Poured a clear, dark brown color with a small off-white foamy head. Aroma was light chocolate notes, like chocolate milk? Flavor was sweet malts, chocolate. Finish is like Tootsie Rolls. Surprisingly not awful, but a bit too artificial.

Bottle from Walmart. Dark in color. Flavor is chocolate with a little vanilla. The chocolate seems a little artificial. Drinkable, but nothing special.
