If you want to drink a Hershey's bar, this is your beer. Very good for a novelty drink. Super chocolatey, although one of my friends tasted coffee (not an afficionado - probably the roasted malts). You aren't going to want to drink it all night. Order one for shits and giggles and then let it go... you've tried it. And you can tell all of your friends. Sort of like that banana bread beer.

Most accurate label I've seen. Just smelling gives you a good idea how strong the chocolate flavor is, and actually drinking is a bit overwhelming the first time around.

Dark brown and opaque with ruby highlights and a beige head of frothy foam that settles quickly. Rich aroma of cocoa and dark malt. Flavors of sweet cocoa upfront, morphs to coffee and marshmallow, notes of cola. Dry and tannic, slightly puckery and talcy. Average beer.
