Essentially, someone has figured out how to carbonate chocolate milk with a splash of vanilla extract and market it as beer. I had heard great things about this brew ... and was very disappointed. This is by far one of the worst beers I've encountered, one of our tasting team jokingly commented about mixing miller lite with chocolate milk... sorry.
A: The appearance and smell initially had me very excited. Dark with a thin foamy head.
S: The aroma really peaked my senses; enticing vanilla and chocolate.
T: Watery chocolate milk... There just wasn't much umph to this drink or complexity. It honestly tasted like someone took a can of carbonated water and mixes it with chocolate milk. Or perhaps a vanilla root beer when the dispenser is running out of syrup to mix and you have a completely off but very carbonated drink.
M: Very thin beer, I personally enjoy mine much thicker. There was no creaminess which I often associate with Vanilla based beers etc. Very effervescent and sparkly, far too much...
O: This was a very disappointing beer. I really tried to give this one a chance, it was initially chilled and as I drank allowed it to warm to see if it would change in flavor depth and complexity... all I got was a vanilla chocolate fizziness. Perhaps I had a bad batch? But I'm a little afraid to try it again when there are so many other outstanding beers.
