750mL waxed bottle shared. aroma is chocolatey booze. Taste is warm vanilla with a delicious hot cocoa aftertaste. Wow this beer is damn tasty. Between the Bruery’s White Chocolate and Chocolate Rain I think i may like to drink my fill of Willy Wonka for the rest of my life. Hell of a brew

This is decadently sweet and flavorful. Outstanding aroma and deep chocolate taste is why I drink big beers like this. Simply amazing. Beardaxe (293) - - OCT 20, 2013
Sampled twice at GABF. This was unbelievable. Flavor initially knocks you over with some of the strongest chocolate flavors you'll get in a beer. Impressively, however, the chocolate didn't taste artificial like most chocolate bombs (I'm looking at you Rogue). Instead the sweetness of the chocolate, which verges on cloying, is held in check with a satisfying cocoa bitterness. The barrel aging is subtle, so much so that I didn't notice it until my second sample. Once I did, though, I greatly appreciated it. It adds a layer of background complexity that plays well with the dominant tones of the chocolate. A beautiful beer. Also I had no idea it was 19%. I drank it like it was 11 at most.

On tap at GABF 2013, big bourbon chocolate aroma, taste is bourbon, chocolate, booze, vanilla. Not as hot as I thought it would be, great beer. theothermatt (286) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Tasted at GABF and the highlight of the night. Very rich aroma. Sweet. Vanilla and Oak. Very smooth and not nearly enough alcohol to show it’s nearly 20%. A damn near perfect sipper and something that I wish I could have and enjoy a bit more of. ajnepple (6622) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Sampled at GABF 2013. One my favorites from both sessions I attended. Unbelievable aroma and flavor. Lots of chocolate and vanilla sweetness hide the ABV. I must get more of this! One ounce was not nearly enough.
