3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Botte. Pours black. Small tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor is of bitter dark chocolate. Sensation of it being powdery. Lots and lots of chocolate, but nothing else. Rated it reasonably well because I enjoyed it, but in order to be a superior beer it needs a thicker palate. Kind of thin. Could use a roasty quality. Interesting though that even with a thinner palate the finishing mouthfeel is full and it left me satisfied. Regardless this is a nice winter beer.
Black color with a small head. Strong milk chocolate aroma with a strong hit of lactose. Sweet chocolate flavor. A bit of maple syrup. Light roasted barley. Finishes sweet. gripweed57 (2460) - 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.

Bottle. Has an intense cocoa milk chocolate aroma. Taste is a slightly creamy chocolate with some light roast malts oobawa (1399) - 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 (1417) - 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 I’ve had, but overall, it’s too sweet and sugary.
