4.16/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into tulip 16/2/14

A black liquid with a deep cola edge, two fingers of mocha foam sits around for a few sips but leaves zero lace

S Hershey's chocolate syrup hits me strong, chocolate covered cherries, chocolate milk, reminds me of black forest cake in a big way with chocolate, cherries and cream, not sure where the cherry comes from but I can't shake it, smells beautiful

T not far off the nose, just a hint of coffee, fudge, and booze comes through a little, it is what it claims, this is a chocolate monster

M not overly thick for a big beer this dark, enough carbonation to give it some life, very sticky on the lips, a little heat, chocolate syrup and faint coffee linger

O so over the top with the chocolate but I dig it, goes down with no problems and I'll be tasting chocolate tomorrow at this rate

this one lives in chocolate land, not much else but I do love chocolate, the nose is divine and no major complaints elsewhere

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

Pours the darkest brown you can get before hitting black. Nice mocha head. Aromas are of chocolate, chocolate, and um....a bit more chocolate. It’s crazy. On the palate it has a semi-creamy mouthfeel, and there is once again an overwhelming predominance of chocolate. There is a mild hint of burnt malts on the swallow, and some definite booziness comes out eventually. Also getting the same taste as those chocolate caramels I used to have as a kid. Overall, a great beer by these guys, but they should package it in smaller bottles. I drank the entire 750ml myself in one sitting over a few hours, and the sweetness definitely wore me down.

4.53/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

$14.99 750ml poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Aggressive pour gave a fluffy, brown, three finger head with a lot of lacing left behind. Absolutely gorgeous. Pitch black in the glass. (5/5)

Smell: Major chocolate. They weren't kidding. Chocolate Frosty sort of aroma is huge on this beer. Coffee/roasty notes are there as well, but this basically is all about the chocolate. Insane. (4.75/5)

Taste/feel: The texture is like chocolate milk -- maybe a little LESS heavy. I am shocked at the drinkability of this, actually, as it's not as thick as I thought it would be. Carbonation is about moderate. The taste of this beer is absolutely unique for me. Just loads of all sorts of varieties of chocolate, with a roast finish that adds some much needed bitterness. I was told it tasted sort of like a Wendy's Frosty, and it actually does a little bit. A little freaky. Super delicious. The alcohol is absolutely nowhere at all in this beer. I get no warmth at all, and zero flavor. Phenomenal. As it warms, the booze comes out a little bit more, and the beer becomes a bit of a different, albeit equally delicious, animal. (4.5/5, 4/5)

My sole knock on this beer is probably the feel. It could use a little more thickness, but overall, this is a ridiculous milk stout. Loads of chocolate, and the alcohol is hidden flawlessly. Definitely a 750ml for two or more though, as the beer quickly becomes rich. I can normally drink one myself without much issue, but with this one, it'll take me awhile. Damn is it delicious, but it's like dessert.

(4.5/5)
