Pours a very dark brown almost black with a khaki head leaving moderate lacing. Strong chocolate nose. Overwhelming chocolate flavor with a slight coffee aftertaste, very sweet, but very good.

It’s very dark chocolate brown, nearly black with dense brown, orange tinted suds, eventually settling with no lace. The aroma is intense with dark chocolate and caramel, some booze, pine, orange blossom... Flavor is bittersweet chocolate up front. Delicious, with some darker, coffee bitterness underlying, caramel, some smokiness and a touch of alcohol warmth. It’s not overly thick, like, say Ten Fidy, but still thick and slick. It finishes with just a touch of cocoa powder and some syrupy fruit notes. I like this a lot. A lot a lot. Yummers.

Battle poured opaque black with tan head. Nose all milk chocolate, marshmallow and sweet malt. Taste mild bitter up front, then lots of milk chocolate, mild roast and hint of coffee. Smooth late palate sweetness fades to mild bitter on finish.

Tap pour. Rich, almost black brown. Ecru head. Some lacing. Nose is pure chocolate milkshake. Damn. Taste is Ovaltine and might toasted malt. Dangerous. Abv almost entirely hidden. Sweet, but never cloying. Is this beer?

Bottle. Black with a quickly dissapating
Mocha head. Aroma is sweet toasty cocoa and coffe. The taste follows suit with a bitter finish and a touch of booze. The mouthfeel is too thin and the carb is too high for my taste. Great overall but I wish the mouthfeel had some richness to it.

Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is deep sweet chocolate - whoa Nestles Quick. Taste is (whoa again) rich Nestles chocolate with a hint of raisin. Mid and finish are the same rich chocolate flavor.

Transfer from BA review on 7-28-12 -
Poured from bottle into a snifter glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very deep black color with small tan head. The head faded relatively fast to leave a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The smell is big and bold of chocolate and malt. Heaviest is the aroma of a milk chocolate nature; a sweet and very soothing smell. The malt is of a bitter dark roast, balancing out the milk chocolate sweet. Along with the coffee and chocolate are notes of vanilla, caramel, coffee, and cream. Overall it creates an aroma with tons of roasty and cocoa aromas. It smells delicious.
Taste – A heavy roasted malt body with a strong semi-sweet chocolate flavor are the first to meet the tongue. These flavors are big and bold and are soon meet with a lighter coffee flavor as well as flavors of lactose and some burnt caramel. While initially the chocolate was more sweet in nature, it bitters as time goes on, taking on a more bitter dark chocolate taste. As the chocolate transitions the dark roast coffee flavor also intensifies. In the end these favors mix with a very light alcohol flavor, leaving a pleasant sweet yet somewhat roasty taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer was on the creamier side with the carbonation level being on the very average side. The body coasted the tongue in all the delicious roast and malt flavors and once the carbonation bubbles are done popping on your tongue it makes for one smooth and silky tasting beer.
Overall – This is a strong and delicious beer. Huge sweet and darker chocolate flavors mixed with a wonderful body and aroma. Fantastic!!

It pours a dark black with a light cream colored head. Smells exactly like chocolate syrup chocolate milk when going heavy on the syrup. Really good aroma. The taste somewhat matches the aroma. You still get the syrup flavors. Not much coffee. The alcohol definitely shows in the back taste. Not too much. But definitely there. Chocolate milk is the basis here. All the way. Not bad.
