Well, this beer lives up to its name. I wasn't a fan of the first chocolate imperial stout Flying Monkeys did, but the reviews for this beer were sufficiently good that I caved and gave it a try. Whoops. Doesn't work for me. It really does taste like an alcoholic chocolate milk. Is the chocolate flavour nice? Yes. But it is pretty much all there is. If I wanted a chocolate drink I would have a milkshake.
Anyway, perhaps it is a silly complaint. It is obvious what you are getting into with this beer. It is chocolate chocolate chocolate. If you want that- I guess it's great. But it's too narrowly focused for me.

Wow. Hot chocolate for big people. Just plain decadent. Enough alcohol to provide some punch to a crazy chocolate thing going on. Bam! TONS of high quality CHOCOLATE.

Looks good on the pour. Big handsome firm head sitting on a cola coloured brew. No meaningful lace or retention, though, so shaving a couple points.

Nose is CHOCOLATE with some sweetness and a whiff of alcohol and fruit. Taste is big CHOCOLATE and fruit and a really nice note from the alcohol in the beer. Coffee after bite. Drinks like a liqueur. Silky smooth mouth feel. Very rich and soft.

This is a big in-your-face beer. If you like chocolate, you'll like this. But it's quite extreme in style, so it won't be for everyone. Great dessert beer. Sweet and rich, so might be suitable for sharing (or at least plan to go slow). No mercy here just CHOCOLATE.
