Big thanks to Adam for gifting me this and other Michigan beers. the beer is near black (the lighting was low) with a small tan head. This beer is all about the chocolate. The scent and the flavor are rich, dark, chocolates. A hint of espresso bean, cocoa. medium bodied with a light sweetness. perhaps I was in a chocolate mood. This was delicious.

As advertised.

Starts like a medium roast/nut-ale. Finishes with a hint of chocolate.

All in all I really liked the beer. It wasn't like washing down a bottle of chocolate milk but you do get a distinct flavor and smell of chocolate.

Good winter beer (or unless you live in Ohio, an early March beer when winter still has us firmly in its grass).

Was slightly disappointed with the ABV. At only about 5% it is fairly weak.

Was a big fan of the "bottled on" date at the bottom of the sticker. Got a fairly old batch (bottled Jan, 2014) but it was still good beer.

Dark brown color, no head. Has an amazing dark chocolate smell, but the taste is underwhelming. Despite the promise of the aroma, I got very little in terms of flavor. Has a watery feel. The taste is strongly reminiscent of a weak Dr. Pepper. Palate is strongly carbonated and comes off a little too harsh.
