3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a khaki head and light sticky lacing .... Aroma of cocoa, some bitter chocolate and roasted malts .... Taste is of cocoa, roasted and chocolate malts with a light bitter bite ... mouthfeel is thin ... has an off flavor like cheap chocolate you would get at easter time .... cocoa flavor does give it a sort of decent flavor
On tap. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate malt, sweet malt. Flavor of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, toffee. Nice, roasty, light chocolate notes. LetsGoState (912) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Pours a deep dark brown with a healthy light brown head which lingers.......aroma of metallic chocolate.....taste is slightly smooth beginning, slight coffee, touch of chocolate then metallic bittering finishing sweet, almost lactic sweet......ADDENDUM after reviewed, when pouring I thought I heard a "PLOP" but thought nothing of it, as I got to the bottom of the glass there was a big, ol’ lump of something (I will assume cocoa) which I poured out into the trash. Still not sure what it was and don’t want to know, but have two more of the bottles. Unfortunate. FROTHINGSLOSH (8164) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter and roasty with cocoa powder and floral hops. The flavor was bitter and roasty and more dry than I expected with notes of cocoa and floral hops. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Disappointing.

Dark opaque pour with medium tan head. Big chocolate smell. Light coffee undertone. Flavor is similar. Strong dry malt with chocolate. Finish with coffee. I enjoyed. A good chocolate and not overwhelming for roasty BuckeyeBoy (8568) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2016

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size lasting frothy light-brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, eggshells, very light hops and notes of coffee and chocolate. Flavour of chocolate first, slightly artificial tasting, with roasted malt in the back. Average bodied. Just O.K. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
This is a beer that tastes more like coffee than chocolate. It’s good, but I’m not a coffee drinker, so it’s not something I loved so much as I respectfully appreciated.
