4.08/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours an opaque deep brown with garnet highlights and a creamy, frothy beige head that lingers.

Light roast, sweet cocoa, and nutty, toasted malt form the aroma. The chocolate character is reminiscent of malted milk balls, with marshmallow sweetness. Very decadent!

Flavor does not disappoint. Chocolate is dominant, though the roasty, slightly bitter finish is more pronounced than expected. There's an initial milk chocolate sweetness that ups the indulgence factor. Nutty, toasted malt forms the backbone, but the chocolate really steals the show.

Body is a touch full, with modest carbonation.

Guilty pleasure of a beer, but the slight bitterness at the finish prevents it from being overly dessert-like. Great malt character. The only slight issue I have is a hint of acrid taste at the finish.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Medium to dark brown in appearance that poured a light but frothy two finger head.

Smells like chocolate syrup...not yet to thrilled.

Wow, they nailed the name right on the head with this one, tastes exactly like a chocolate shake, but not that great.

Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, not great either.

Overall this is definitely a dessert beer, wouldn't touch it for anything else.
