This is a good beer, but I think it takes the word chocolate to an extreme. It's got the same sort of flavor Hershey's syrup has - rich and slightly bitter. It's good for one glass, but I don't forsee myself buying this again. Don't get me wrong, it's enjoyable. But it's not your typical beer. At least it doesn't really come off as something I'll ever say I have a yearning for.
The beer pours dark & rich, as you might expect. Little to no head to speak of. Decent aroma with the foreshadowing of chocolate syrup to follow. Decent but thin mouthfeel, with an abundance of chocolate overtones and a malty body. Everything about this is hinted with that chocolate syrup taste - overtones, body, nose, finish, aftertaste. You name it, it's there. After I finished the glass and licked my fingers, it tasted like chocolate.
