12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Chocolate is a fitting title for this beer, in a good way. The aroma has that fermented then roasted brown aroma that’s really enjoyable. Characteristic house yeast and minerals but in. Hmmm. I was really expecting a sweet, dense, rich wheaty beer after that aroma and then notion of "chocolate." The body is incredibly dry, but structured. A slightly metallic twinge and the hint of ash from the roasted malt. I think this could have gone a number of directions and this one speaks of austerity, straightforwardness, and honesty.
Aroma: Strong dark chocolate note, fantastic. Almost black in color, lasting thin tan head. Chocolate but not much else, a bit watery. It’s good but not fantastic. Travlr (24897) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Draft at Churchkey. Very dark clear maroon brown color, tan head. Aroma of brownies dipped in coffee. Taste is toasted brownies. Nice. Msdrbeat (780) - East Lansing, USA - APR 14, 2016
On tap at Hopcat. The name surprised me. Solid body with dark color. Chocolate aroma and malt. UncleKorm (1319) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle poured a black hue w/ a thin dimming tan head. Moderate boozy chocolate aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are roasted coffee, dark chocolate, dark toast, and earthy hop. Medium bodied.

Bottle, chocolate dominant aroma, chocolate and roasted malts on the aroma, good stuff b3shine (8875) - Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Draft to taster. Looks good; a lightly translucent dark brown with foamy beige head. Smells malty with a nice balance of chocolate and mild coffee. Tastes like it smells, but not as chocolatey, with more roast than coffee. Mouthfeel is medium light to medium-bodied. Solid beer. outlawskies (480) - Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Touch of smoke not a lot of chocolate, more coffee. There is no smell. Not caramel. Smooth porter not a lot of bready malt. Julie gives 3.5

Pours black with a brown head. Aromas of nuts and malt. Flavors of nuts with hints of coffee and chocolate. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Kind of an odd one. Not really getting chocolate flavors... mostly just tastes like a wheat beer with roasty malt.
