2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap @ The State Bar. Clear golden pour with white foam. Some chocolate, vanilla extract, and a whole lot of sugar. Like, woah. Super sweet and malty. Flavor is like a prepackaged chocolate milk with a bunch of extra sugar and some vanilla. Tons of sweetness to this. Almost undrinkable to me with how sweet it is. No thanks.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Pours amber with fast dissipating head. Little aroma even though I let it warm up. Mostly flavorless with a small hint of chocolate. Very watery. Don?t waste your money on trying this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden in color with a bit of white head. Slight chocolatey aroma, definitive white chocolate flavor. Quite interesting, and surprisingly chocolatey flavor that goes decently with the beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cocoa powder and light vanilla...maybe a touch of grass. It?s a transparent dull gold with a small white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some spotty lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of wheat. The finish has light-moderate sweet cocoa powder and vanilla. It?s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it?s probably a good thing I got a 4oz sample. I like chocolate, but straight cocoa powder generally wears on me quickly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Phoenix. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and pale malts. Sweet and sugary. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. I’m told this is very popular out here. I liked the first few sips but got sick of it quickly. Wouldn’t recommend more than a taster.
