look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Light brown, cola-colored liquid with a thin taupe-tinged head. Minimal lacing ability.

Nose redolent of chocolate and not much else at first. Closer investigation yields sweet cola aroma and a hint of weak, cheap diner coffee.

The name says it all in the flavor department -- lots of chocolate, cocoa, chocolate milk, etc. Cocoa Krispies in milk, more or less, with some standard bock-like sweet malt. Additional hints of sweetened coffee and cola accompanied by hardly any hop presence. Sweet, but not cloying, and, well, chocolatey. Sweet, lenghty finish.

Mouthfeel is decent, though the body could stand to be a bit fuller and fatter. The thinness improves drinkability, though it does not add much to the beer itself.

More drinkable than I'd initially thought, this is a tasty, interesting brew. Without question, it's great with dessert. I tried pairing it with Cherry covered cheesecake, which worked very well. I'm not even going to mention the price tag. Let's just say it's not the best value you'll find at the store, though it is beautifully packaged and worth a try for posterity's sake.

3.51/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a deep brown, almost black color with a moderate head but lacing throughout.

S - A mild cocoa with some hint of malt - no hops at all.

T - Chocolate with a hint of sweetness from the malt.

M - Almost velvety smooth with a sweet finish.

O - This is "Yoo Hoo" for adults. Nothing you want to do a session with, but like a lot of Samuel Adams Specialty beers a nice change of pace.

3.95/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark chocolate brown, pretty much black, with a creamy mocha ring of head.

S: Malty and chocolatey nose, not much else.

T: Malt, milk chocolate, medium roast coffee and roasted malt.

M: Medium bodied and smooth enough.

O: Not really what I expected, but then again, it doesn't stray too far from what I expected. It's decent, worth a try. Recommended.
