Just an odd combo. Chocolate flavor in a blond ale. Not for me.

This is the first chocolate beer I have liked. The chocolate actually tastes brewed with the beer. I enjoy Great River Beer and is the best Quad City brewing company. The mouthfeel is great and the chocolate is a very sweet and smooth addition at the finish.

on tap at the beer place in Perham, Minnesota

Looking pretty good in the glass, slightly cloudy yellow, with a fairly small clean white head.

Smell, well, little disclaimer here, I'm a bit of a chocoholic, so loved! the smell. Some grassy freshness mixed in there as well

Taste was what you'd expect from the nose, nice clean taste with a nce mouth of chocolate

Mouth itself was pretty thin

Overall, enjoyable, though I doubt I'd want more than one at a session. Daughter went absolutely nuts for this, but then she's a worse chocolate fiend than I am.
