ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Portion of a 22 oz bottle into a regular glass. A: Pours a dark burgundy color with good opacity. The head is a two finger mocha shade. Good lacing is left down the glass. S: Theres a decent chocolate character backed by some roasted malts and citrusy hops. The chocolate is sweet, though a touch off putting. Far from bad, though. T: Chocolate gives way to a roasted barley finish, laced with some bitter hops. It strikes a better balance than the double version. All in all, the flavor profile is simple, but not cloying. M: Its dry and light...at first. This initial sensation cleanses the chocolate sweetness well, however it doesnt fully clean it up. Therefore, it strikes me as unfocused, as its caught between dessert beer or drinkable dry stout. Drinkable, though. O: This would make a rock-solid everyday stout if it were A) in 6 packs and B) less expensive. Its still a decent offering, and better than the double.

UXO (1888) - CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
Appearance: near opaque black with the merest hints of brown around the margins, one fat finger of dense light brown head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: chocolate, roasty malt, mild coffee. (7/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: full body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5) I recently tried their Hazelutely Choctabulous, but hadnt tried its 40% component, so decided Id give it a shot. And, having closed the circle on this, it all makes sense now. This is dominated by bitter chocolate, with no hint of milk chocolate sweetness, making it not as one-dimensional as the 60% component Hazelnut Nectar, but definitely simple. Combining this ones bitterness and chocolate flavours with the nutty sweetness of the Hazelnut Nectar basically provide all the components for a candy bar, and makes Hazelutely Choctabulous greater than the sum of its parts. (And yes, I retained some of both components and mixed them myself. Calling it magic might be gilding the lily a tad, but its definitely worth doing, if you can lay hands on both components but not the blended bottle.) (14/20)
