Pours a dark brown color with a thin fizzy head, the head fades away at a lightning pace and leaves no lacing on the glass.

Smell has a very strong cocoa aroma, pretty much chocolate chocolate chocolate, not much else gets through.

Taste starts out with a very artificial chocolate flavor, sweetness throughout with a hint of vanilla, fizzy carbonation makes it seems like a chocolate cola than a a beer

Review from notes, Dec 2013, 12oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- pours a fizzy black color, nearly opaque, with a one finger head that reduces quickly, leaving just a film on top

S- chocolate malt aroma with a hint of vanilla, not getting much wheat

T- chocolate up front follows the nose, again not much wheat, a hint of vanilla & citrus.

M- medium body with medium fizzy carbonation that continues into a crisp finish

O- this kind of drinks like a schwartzbier, only not as strong. One of the better Shock Top beers, but nothing I'd buy again

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pitch black that pours a thick beige head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Chocolate and a hint of vanilla.

Taste: Sweet, taste like chocolate syrup. No wheat noticed

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, kind of coats the mouth.

Overall: Better than I expected, a sweet chocolate beer that if perfect for a winter night. I would drink it again.

we need to call a spade a spade here, this really isnt half as bad as its ratings, the flavors are actually pretty good in it, the chocolate is really forward, and honestly not all that sweet compared to expectations. i could not really tell you its a wheat beer, very little real grain character to this one, but i will say that i like it better than plenty of craft chocolate beers, the only thing here is that it sort of feels cheap. the mouthfeel is really really light. dark(ish) beer for people who dont like dark beer, no body, lots of bubbles, minimal roasted malt balance against the chocolate, its simply chocolate in the flavor, which i dont hate, but its not that beery. there is a slight metallic property right before the swallow, and the thinness gets off putting, but it tastes pretty good honestly, and holds a creamy head pretty well. compared to its peers, its superior, we owe it to ourselves to admit that.
