Bottle found at the bottom of the fridge (best by May 2016 -- oops!). Extremely sweet and loaded with dense, chewy chocolate flavor. It reminded me of some of those rare, fancy stouts brewed with cocoa, except this was part of a mixed 12 pack. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a nice deep reddish brown color. Aromas of rich dark malts, chocolate, fruit. Flavor is rich with a lot of flavors light chocolate, dark fruit, smoke, coffee.

Dark malt/ raisiny smell to it, quite dark, taste is smooth and malty...front end a little sweet, with a touch of coffee and tiny bit of bitterness on finish...smooth and good! Medium complexity bpar73 (1232) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma and taste is dark chocolate with a fruity note. Semi-sweet chocolate in the finish. frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Thick pour producing a fast-fading tan head over a deep, ruby-brown body. Aroma is sweet and chocolaty, with a hint of fruit and vanilla, like whiffing a scoop of Neapolitan ice cream. I can’t say I dislike that. Sweet, thick and smooth on the tongue, slight tingle of carbonation. Rich chocolate flavor with milder notes of cherries and vanilla. Sweet? Yes... but tempered by the bitterness of toasted grains. This would be totally decadent if a tad heavier, but it’s a sweet treat if you plan on drinking more than one beer on a chilly evening. (**This version [Best By: May 2016] states on the neck label that the chocolate is from Ecuador, not Ghana as in the above deScription.) ~~~~ From a Sam Adams 12 Pk. of "Winter Classics", received as a gift.

Bottle, pours black with medium tan head. Chocolate to the nose and palette with a little vanilla on the end and some carbonation. Good beer.
