3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with a thick tan head. It certainly looks like chocolate! The aroma of dark bitter chocolate is very strong and to me it was almost off-putting. Besides the chocolate (dark cocoa, not milk) I noted some dark fruit backed by a faint tartness. The flavor was full of cocoa bitterness, along with some roasted malt that lingers in the end. The beer is only 7% ABV but a bit of alcohol warmth comes through in the finish. The mouthfeel was moderately carbonated and not as thick as I had expected. Not horrible, but not the best chocolate beer I’ve tried.
750ml at home. Dark brown with a full tan head. Heavy chocolate, roasted malts, toffee, caramel. Light carb. Lingering malty finish. Flavors improve with the temperature. Westy1130 (98) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2017
Rich dark appearance with frothy head. Aroma: fresh ground cocoa, and coffee beans. Deceptively bitter on the palate and not as chocolatey as it seems. very hoppy and malty. jsporrer (1058) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Pours a deep dark brown to black with a big tan foamy head. Strong aroma of cocoa and sweet malts. Smooth creamy body with a medium texture. Nice cocoa taste with a hint of coffee flavor and roasted malts. Smooth finish and a decent aftertaste. Enjoyable but not that special. jsnicholas (650) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2016

Pours a nice deep dark brown(almost black) color. Aromas of chocolate, smoke, and some sweetness. Flavor is dark chocolate, a touch of berry, and smokey. Creamy with a dry finish and a bittersweet aftertaste. NikkTwist (3280) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2016

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a 750mL bottle. Pours a beautiful, dark, velvety black, with plenty of thick frothy head, an absolute beautiful looking brew! Strong aromas of chocolate, with a slight note of Belgian yeast. Nice chocolaty smoothness without being overpowering, just a wonderful, amazing brew! johnnymusky (983) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle i purchased and shared with brian john and dusty...i would have liked more chocolate in taste but still a solid beer...easy drinker. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Nose is herbal with notes of chocolate malts. Feel dark muddy brown pour, rests black in glass with a thick foamy tan head. Good lacing. Palate was kinda weak; thinner side of medium body but definitely smooth and silky. The name had me expecting a bolder richer chocolate flavor, still nice flavor though. While not exactly what i had hoped for it’s s good beer.
