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.

Can. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Creamy chocolate, vanilla, moderate sweetness, cafe con leche, and a sweet chocolate/vanilla finish. Really not that bad.

LetsGoState (656) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2015
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.

12 oz bottle. (White Cross Liquor) Las Vegas, NV.
Dark brown colour with a small tan head. Milk chocolate and nougat in the aroma. The flavour is chocolate, malt and some baking soda. Not bad.

Jabah (180) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2015
This one one of the better ones out of this year’s winter mixpack. Reminded me of last year’s Midnight Wheat. Balance could be a little better, but going in you’d expect that. Sort of a mix between a dunkel and light stout. I wouldn’t go out my way for this, but is a little above average and drinkable.

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s in a mixer sixer. Pours a deep brown appearance with a brown head. The aroma is full of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, mild dark fruit, coconut, and some sweetness. Fairly high carbonation. Kind of tastes like a milk chocolate with some orange. Lots of milk chocolate and vanilla. Not much at all on the aftertaste. Kind of strange but not hard to drink.

12 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malts and grains. Taste is malts, chocolate, caramel and grains.

jjuf1853 (1263) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from Shock Top Winter variety pack. Pours an opaque dark brown with a tan head that quickly fades into a thin layer. No lacing to be had along the glass. Aroma has some roasted chocolate notes with a good bit of cocoa powder. Flavor is slightly sweet, but not as sweet as I expected. The semi-artificial taste reminds me a bit of chocolate Tootsie Pops.

rondphoto (2702) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY ---Opaque very dark brown, full beige head, lace that slides back into the drink. Taste is malt that has strong overtones of dark chocolate and vanilla. Because the sweet doesn’t overwhelm, this actually works as a novelty (and only one-at-a-time) brew. Very light bittering is all that is needed at the end.

355ml twist off. Brown pour, artificial flavor of cocoa puffs, tastes like chocolate soda.
