3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours unclear dark brown, dark mahogany tint, with a small beige cap offering minimal retention and lacing. sweet chocolate treats, powdery milk chocolate, vanilla, hazelnuts - nutella *TM, lightly astringent leather and herbs, raspberry fruitiness (!), shy yeast if not absent/hided esters. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; sweet and awkwardly astringent herbal and mineral-chalky finish. artificial proportion stands out versus natural cocoa and vanilla beans. then again, this is not terrible.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours murky dark brown with head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is milk chocolate, orange peel, and bready malts. Flavor is bland with mostly chocolate flavors, light vanilla sweetness, and a dry finish that leaves a somewhat bad aftertaste. Light/medium body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep brown with hints of red where the light gets through on the edges. Fairly large head forms and is tan in color. Aromas of sweet chocolate and vanilla hit right up front. Fairly one dimensional, with sweet notes beginning to end.Starts with a vanilla sweetness that moves quickly to chocolate. Some grainy wheat notes on the back end of the drink.Low to medium in carbonation. Overall its smooth across the palate and extremely easy drinking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
APPEARANCE - dark brown, light brown head which all but disappears immediately after pouring.
NOSE - slight bit of roastiness in there. Surprisingly little wheat beer character.
FLAVOR - direct hit of chocolate - not too much though. However, I’m bewildered trying to figure out how authentic the chocolaty sweetness is. The vanilla bean aging gives this nice balance.

Appearance is small tan head with a dark brown color. Aroma is strongly chocolate. Taste is a light chocolate like a scratch n sniff. Overall not a big fan - tastes too much like fake chocolate.
