ebone1988 (1793) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Aroma is sweet chocolate, vanilla on the end. Appearance is a dark brown, light brown head. Taste is light, malty, very chocolate aftertaste and super bitter about 2 seconds after you swallow. Mouthfeel is average, light and slightly carbonated. Overall it is ok, could do with higher ABV as there is much potential here.

gripweed57 (2121) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Translucent reddish brown color. Large pillowy light tan head. Sweet toasted malt aroma is redolent of milk chocolate. Slightly sweet cocoa flavor upfront. Roasted malt, cashews, toasted bread and chocolate wafers follow. Spicy notes in middle. Sticky malt finish. Medium bodied, yet only average complexity.

oobawa (1193) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Nice pour, but the texture is surprisingly thin, in dire need of some thickness and more carbonation. Smells like a big glass o chocolate, though, which is a plus. Taste...needs help, artificial cocoa flavor on top of a yeasty English brown ale, not sweet but false, with a really unpleasant tartness on the back end. Not good.

wombat23 (1283) - Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a light beige head. Very chocolatey aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, dark malts, nuts, vanilla notes, sugary. Very sweet and chocolatey. Almost like chocolate milk or a chocolate shake - well, a very thin chocolate shake. Probably the most chocolatey beer Ive had, but overall, its too sweet and sugary.

darbeer75 (858) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Aroma: very nutty and chocolaty; Appearance: very dark amber, clear, with thin white head that dissipates fairly quickly; Taste: follows nose but with an odd, slightly chemical taste; Palate: heavy body with long, odd finish; Overall: drinkable but would not get again.

Poured from the tap into a mug at Taco Mac in Smyrna, GA. The beer has a great dark black color with a small tan head. The taste is an incredible chocolate flavor.
