I hated it. I was expecting a roasted dry cocoa flavor. Instead it tasted like Newcastle with Hershey's chocolate syrup added. Very disappointed. One of the few beers I was not able to finish. If you are not into sweets STAY AWAY. Expensive beer and not worth it in my opinion.

$5.29 for a 550ml bottle. Pours out to a clear dark mahogany, forming a tall soapy tan head with very good retention and lacing. Moderate strong carbonation, ~3.0 carbs. The nose is redolent with tootsie roll fake chocolate smell, not really much more than that....Carob. The mouthfeel is medium-light bodied and somewhat cloying. The taste begins with tootsie roll, has some peanut in the middle, then tootsie roll in the finish. Very mild bitterness, quite sweet considering the lighter body. Minimal to absent roast flavor. Metallic finish with an aftertaste of saccharin.
This is a pretty gross beer. The obviously fake chocolate extract flavor doesn't sit well with the saccharin aftertaste and the metallic finish and the absolute lack of roast flavor. Would not buy it again or recommend it unless you're into "beers" like this. Ugh.

Pours jet black with a light tan head. In the aroma, sweet chocolate, kind of like Hershey's syrup. In the taste, like Hershey's syrup, uber sweet. A small bite, but mainly smooth, and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, and a small dry sweet chocolate in the aftertaste. Uber sweet and sticky, kind of Hershey's syrup like, kind of icky.

This beer was not what I expected. Pour into glass was exciting, dark beer, thick head. Aroma was good, came off like a stout. Taste wise was a huge let down. The chocolate was horribly artificial and not from grain or cacao. I was really expecting it one way or another, but the way it came off was a let down. At least I had other stout options to go to for round 2.
