I really enjoyed this beer, expecting more of a gimmick than a serious product. I tend to enjoy most Sam Adams offerings. That said, the aroma hits you - more towards the coffee end than the chocolate. The color is rich and deep - inviting to those of us who like dark beers. The taste - well, suffice it to say the chocolate is subtle, not forward, and there's a definate sweetness overall to the beer. Similar, in a way, to how the sweetness is a major component of their Sam Adams Double Bock. The addition of the chocolate allows this beer to be enjoyed after dinner, with or without dessert. There's definately a need for more beers in this category. However, like dessert wines, it's a taste for a smaller audience. Overall - this beer gets an A!
12 ounce bottle at home, winter mix pack. I love the aroma, you can smell the chocolate. Very smooth, light carbonation. Black is the color of this brew. Medium thickness as you can taste the chocolate. No after bite. Very nice beer! Don’t forgot to mention the malt in this beer. YummY beer_rookie (554) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Pours a very brown color, very nearly black. Good head, beige color. Pretty good lacing.ozzy70 (1133) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Aroma is chocolate, and that’s about it. But smells great.
Tastes like chocolate. It’s sweet. If any bitterness, it’s from the natural chocolate bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Smooth. Pretty dry. Sweet. Thin. Tastes like a dessert beer.
Overall, while it is really one dimensional, it is delicious. I’d drink it again. I’d buy it and recommend it. Probably the perfect beer to take to a party, or to give as a present.
12 oz. bottle. Pours black, foamy tan head. Aroma was malty, roasted malts, cocoa, nuts. Taste was sweet, milk chocolates, cocoa, smooth. SlimHabib (462) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - JAN 15, 2017

Cerveza color oscuro. Aromas de maltas tostadas, café ,dulce y chocolate. Al paladar se percibe una consistencia semi espesa. Se perciben notas a café, dulce y chocolate con un agradable balance entre estos elementos. En el retrogusto permanece el sabor a chocolate y dulce. Excelente cerveza perfectamente balanceada.

This was not my style: too much chocolate and too little beer. It came off as a creamy mixture of beer and cocoa. weihenweizen (3751) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2016
