Appearance - This beer arrived dark brown with a brown, two finger head exhibiting moderate retention and heavy lacing.
Smell Whoa Chocolate. I mean, they must add a lot of actual chocolate to this beer. Not sure how I feel about it its nearly overpowering. Chocolate rushes to the nose with every sip. Its not really an expensive chocolate taste either; tastes like lots of chocolate syrup has been mixed in.
Taste - This beer tastes of caramel, with a finish thats malty and you guessed it chocolaty.
Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is chewy, creamy, medium-full-bodied, rich and smooth.
Drinkability The overbearing cocoa notes detract from my ability to really get into this beer, but one can tell some work went into making it. Solid. Not my cup of tea.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a small plastic cup (unfortunately all that I had at the time).
1.5 finger head over a solid black-brown body. Head settled to a thin layer that stayed around a while. Lacing on the side of the glass.
Chocolatey scent over the head, as advertised. Not much else.
Taste: Bittersweet dark chocolate. More on the bitter side than the sweet side. Not too bad. The bottle label says 69 IBU.
Moderately strong carbonation.
Overall, perhaps a little too tart for my tastes, but it's not so extreme that I don't want to finish it.
