Dark brown appearance, clearer near the bottom, more mahogany/crimson-hued there, as well,...a decent head starts it off, then slims away to nil. Aroma: cocoa powder, think Swiss Miss, or NEstle Quick, ...and that’s it. Taste: chocolatey, for the first sip, lingering to the middle of the tongue, rising to the roof of the mouth, staying, but not terrible impressive, considering the weakness of the body. A little slick and syrupy, some maple slipping in... Tastes good, actually, and doesn’t taste like a Miller product, much to my surprise. Solid cocoa flavor, extraordinarily drinkable. Inoffensive, but turns oddly sour and bitter near the middle, though. I have the one bottle given by a friend, and I could have a few in a row, but not much more, I think I would quickly tire of it. In short, this one’s like a frosty chocolate milkshake, but with booze!

I’m scared. I’m actually enjoying a Miller product. While I can’t say this is anywhere near the best chocolate beer I’ve ever had, I’m pleasantly surprised by the fact this doesn’t taste as rushed and half-assed as I was expecting. You can still tell it’s obviously a Miller lager, but the chocolate hits right up front and reminds me of Ghirardelli. Nice aroma, but still has the Miller undertones which I’m not a fan of. Foamy head receded quickly, but that’s typical, and I’m diggin’ the fact it doesn’t have the usual Miller-y aftertaste. Shockingly (to me) I wouldn’t mind drinking this again.

Clear brown body. Roasty chocolate extract aroma - dead-on chocolate. The flavor is a weak dark lager with lots of chocolate extract thrown on top. A good novelty beer.

i can see how this won an award,but im not sure id call it an autumn beer.seems more like a specialty does have rich chocolate flavors and colors without being too sweet and not bitter either.i think 2 per sitting session would be my limit on this say this is a medium body with active carbination, pours a nice foam but it breaks down pretty quickly.reminds me of canfields chocolate fudge pop that was big about 25 years ago.if ur loooking for hops look elsewhere. could be a tad richer, maybe a litttle oatmeal?smells great!

Surpise from Miller beer. Dark brown color with small off white head. Aroma and taste of chocolate its like eating a fudgesicle.

12 oz bottle at Kyle’s "This Is Not A Beer Tasting" beer tasting. Wow, this doesn’t suck! Clear brown with a beige head. Milk chocolate nose, like Hershey’s chocolate milk. Flavor is chocolatey along the lines of a Fudgesicle. A tad thin in the body - does not match the rich chocolate flavor. Very pleasant, sweet chocolate experience.

Wow, for a Miller beer, this is actually pretty good. Taste like chocolate, which is never a bad thing, even for a beer. Glad I picked this up.

A nice aroma of milk chocolate. Nice tan head. Flavor of biiter chocolate. Nice complex flavors that blend nicley together. A great seaonal beer, especially if you like chocolate.

Rich delicious aroma with lots of chocolate malt and vanilla. Looks like a coke but with a very nice white frothy head. Flavor is very chocolaty with tones of sweet vanilla and coffee. Fairly bitter, could be smoother. Very thin mouthfeel, which I guess is expected from a wheat lager, but a thicker silkier beer would complement the flavors much more. Not bad, the flavor could be realy good in a stout, but is just decent in this beer.

Bottle thanks to buckybeer. Cola color with small tan head. Smelled of bitter chocolate and a little coffee. Taste began with chocolate malts which quickly gave way to overpowering chocolate chocolate. Maybe if your a macro, you feel the need to go big. But there’s way too much chocolate in this.
