65 cl bottle. BBE 25.06.2016.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Lots of white chocolate on the nose, mild hops, malty notes, earthy. Bitter malt on the flavor, white chocolate, spice notes and faint wood. Quite mellow flavor compared to the nice aroma.

22 oz bottle. Straight from Phoenix. Thanks Timo A! Hazy golden color with a tiny white head. White chocolate, tropical fruits, sweetness and some maltiness in the aroma. Malt, some dryness, mild bitterness and some sweetness. The flavor is rather mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes just like white chocolate but unfortunately it isn't my cup of tea. Good for a few sips but just too much sweetness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has a nice reasonable chocolate flavor. Not too sweet or overwhelming. Not something you'd drink all the time either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread, milk chocolate and light marshmallow. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of cookie, milk chocolate and marshmallow with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

BeerandBlues2 (11711) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy orange with a large, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sweet white chocolate, vanilla, and light cracker malt. Flavor is white chocolate, light cracker malt, vanilla, sugar and a sweet finish. Medium-light body and light carbonation.

Bottle. Wow. This would throw a lot of people for a loop in a blind taster. Golden and hazy, with the visuals of a witbier, the chocolate syrup flavor profile comes off completely unexpectedly if it weren’t for the name and deScription. Tastes like a s’more. (#6044, 10/10/2015)

Faint cocoa smell, peach color with a light white head. On the first sip it tastes fruity, the then on the swallow you takes the chocolate , little sweetness. Needs more ABV, the taste on the swallow makes you wish the white chocolate taste was there on the sip, more malt would help.

This beers only lacking characteristic is its appearance. Wonderful flavor and aroma of chocolate bit smoother than a stout. It keeps that beer undertone in both aspects a swell.
