chocolate, black, In a bottle. After pouring, I smelled the bottle with a sinful smile. Upon tasting the brew, I realized I was having a great dessert. After I had finished, I wanted another Decadent. This is a chocolate lovers dream beer.

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.

Aroma is a mixture of chocolate, fudge, chocolate cake chocolate covered nuts. The flavor is cocoa, chocolate covered nuts, malts and a fruity and tart finish.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small head on it. Strong chocolate notes to the nose of this with just a hint of roasting underneath. Little bit of sweetness to the taste, but great chocolate flavors in it.

The aroma is this beer is untouchable. The dark chocolate flavor is very rich and smooth for an unbelievably crisp taste. Would definitely drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste from Tony. Smells like a milkshake. Tastes like strong chocolate. Too sweet for some. Good for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this beer from a bottle. Chocolate was the word of the day with some coffee notes. the cocoa flavor dominated everything about the beer, which was a pleasant surprise as I love sweet. its an easy drinker and a superb desert beer.

Bottle strangely bottled January AND March 2013 ... I dont know which, but whatever. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Appearance: Very, very deep black color, but a good amount of ruby coloring when held up to light. Two finger head goes down to a tan ring. Looks pretty good. Smell: INSANE aroma. Massive amounts of chocolate... this beer seriously smells like Cocoa Puffs. Impossible to NOT give this beer a 5. Its supposed to be chocolatey, and the smell certainly gives you that. Taste/feel: Gotta admit that Im surprised this beer only has an 82 rating. The beer is dubbed "Decadent", and it really is ... maybe not so much in the mouthfeel, but the taste and smell? Most definitely on point. Massive cocoa on the start and through the sip, but then the finish has a roasty malt characteristic to give it another dimension... I was scared that this might just taste like chocolate through-and-through. Decadents most definitely heavy on the cocoa/chocolate, but thats what I wanted. The mouthfeel is relatively thin, which is a definite bummer, but it DOES help to make the beer more drinkable. And considering its 5.5% ABV, you could enjoy two or three without feeling like youre going to fall over. Very enjoyable, and this has to be my favorite beer from Atwater, which is a brewery that tends to underwhelm me. If the feel on this one were to be a little bit creamier, and the aftertaste was more like the taste is on the front, this could be my favorite chocolate-forward stout. Regardless, a shockingly tasty beer... and the price is right.
