Couldn’t resist it at the store. God knows what I’m in for here. :P
pours an amber-burnt orange color with no head.
smells like non-alcoholic apple cider and cocoa puffs. not even- more like tootsie-roll-flavored novelty chapstick. like- super duper artificial. kind of an intriguing blend of charming and off-putting.
alright. it’s alright. I was expecting it to be something like this-
sweet baked apple and tootsie rolls. a little cinnamon. very sweet. caramelly and marshmallowy, too. this is fun.
light and spritzy. doesn’t stick to one’s throat or overstay its welcome.
this is silly, but I like it well enough, considering it’s a $5 bomber of chocolated flavored hard cider.

bottle. amber with minimal head. sweet chocolate aroma. i suspect you’re either going to dig this or hate it. it definitely works for me. sweeter than most ciders i prefer, but the milk chocolate flavor melds very well. like dessert in a bottle.

Pours coppery, smells like nestle quick with a hint of apple. Flavor is milk chocolate and semi sweet apple. Pleasantly surprised by this thought it might be terrible.

Bottle. Pours a light, clear brown, with an aroma of apples and chocolate that I would not think would work, but it does. Flavor is sweet cider with a solid chocolate presence, and the two flavors blend well. Finish is sweet but with good complexity. Works well. Different but good.

Clear copper like a new penny. The aroma certainly has a fair bit of chocolate with some light caramel and a fair dose of tart green apple. The taste is a bit of a mixed bag. Sweet and a little tart, with a cocoa-like sweetness that cuts the typical sugary apple tone from regular woodchuck, mixed with a pale yellowish apple flavor, maybe gala apple or something like it, with a finish of sugary tartness and a calm and slightly too-mild cocoa tone. Smells chocolatier than it tastes.

Bottle. Nose of slight sulfur and choco love. Minimal head. Taste of weird candy and tart apple. Not that enjoyable. Just weird.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, from Top Shelf Brews. Light copper color in a flute glass. Aroma has mild scent of chocolate up front with very weak apple underneath.
Light body with a effervescent, spritzer mouthfeel. The flavor is very much light a slice of Granny Smith apple dipped in chocolate sauce.
Overall I was a bit of a skeptic buying this bottle. I am nicely surprised, the flavor is subtle and delicate apple upfront with the chocolate noticeable right after you sip.
