4.18/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a finger high dark beige head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a half finger high head covering the surface along with some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are aromas of chocolate syrup and chocolate milk in the nose.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of milk chocolate and cocoa power along with some hints of sweetness. It's a bit like Hershey's chocolate syrup but is much diluted.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little fluffy and creamy (like a milkshake) on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: After much pondering, this beer most reminds me of drinking some chocolate milk (without the heavy dose of lactose) or a good glass of hot chocolate. Nevertheless, it is packed with lots of chocolate flavors but is relatively light-bodied and easy to drink.

3.94/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

550 mL poured to tulip

Pours black with a tidy tan head, lays down to a faint haze of bubbles

Smells of chocolate, dark malt and vanilla. Dissipates quickly

Taste is big on the chocolate, with a nice bourbon vanilla note. Sweet but not cloying.

Mouth feel is surprisingly light

Overall: great dessert beer when in a chocolate mood. A little more balance would be required to be a more regular drinker, but the spritely mouth feel makes an impression. Interesting and exotic.
