4/5 rDev +1.5%
16 ounce pint - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a thinnish, sandy-tan head. Slim, slick coat of lacing.
Smell: Strong chocolate aroma. Yeah, you could maybe try to glean other notes of what-have-you here and there, but it's almost all chocolate here. Almost.
Taste: The flavor akin to chocolate syrup instantly grabs you, not surprising after the aroma. Coffee-edged roast soothed by the sweet chocolate quality. Incredibly low darkened malt astringency. Drying, roasty and still quite chocolaty on the smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Solid, enjoyable. Even the 5.9% ABV is a likable feature. An almost personable chocolate brew. Almost.

3.4/5 rDev -13.7%
12 oz bottle. Pours brown with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet fudgy bakers chocolate.
The flavor is sweet milk chocolate with some slight acidic cardboard notes and a little roast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with prickly carbonation.
Overall, a decent chocolate beer - definitely all chocolate.

4.16/5 rDev +5.6%
Dark chocolate hue with a hint of cola ruby highlights, tan fluffy textured head, with speckled lacing left behind. Aroma creamy cocoa powder, herbal anise like character, with toffee and other nearly burnt sugars, a really soft nice smelling cocoa porter. Flavors just work, creamy toffee, bitterness from the cocoa nibs, again very soft creamy texture I would have guessed oatmeal, the label doesn't mention that but they do use chocolate wheat. It's a more drinkable version of something like Southern Tier Choklat, I can only do 4 ounces of that one, this one however, I could throwback at least two or three bottles. The powdered cocoa, and cocoa nib additions really help balance the sweetness, finishes semi dry in the end, well brewed masterfully done , medium bodied I'm guessing they're comparing it to a malty shoppe chocolate shape it's that creamy and dessert like. Overall killer brew, I will be picking up more for the wife to try.
