penguinfinity (107) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2014
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.

Dark brown color with a moderate sized tan head. Chocolate malt-o-meal scent (I like chocolate malt-o-meal, personal bias). Crème d Cocoa flavor with a touch of vanilla. Bit syrupy. Sticky. Dessert style brew. 6/14

ordybill (1301) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. Aroma- has a very strong chocolate aroma, very unique for a brew Appearance- pours a coffee black with a small dark head Taste- a huge chocolate flavor that caught me off-guard. Not a bad taste but little hint of a beer in there. Palate- a medium bodied beer with a creamy sensation. Overall- I thought it was good, a beer to drink for an occasion and not for a multiple beer event. a Pleasant surprise

czar (7470) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
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.

sonnycheeba (4919) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2015
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.

BeerRenter76 (719) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
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.

Bottle (Aviano PX); pours dark brown with a beige head; aroma is sweet with cocoa and wheat; taste is sweet with chocolate and a little wheat and vanilla; light bitter finish; nothing really spectacular with this one.

hopdog (11196) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2015
12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Chocolate and vanilla. Sweet - if I had to say a positive, a decent Shocktop beer ...

bnokk (447) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2015
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.
