For anyone who likes a smooth creamy sweet beer from time to time this is a must try. It was like a chocolate beer milk shake.

I had it as 12oz bottle and gotta say it was one my favorite chocolate beers ever. I just wish it was more available.

A: Pours a fantastic black color with one finger of caramel colored head that hangs around for a while.

S: A little weak, a mix of chocolate and faint malt aromas.

T: Chocolate and more chocolate. There is a hint of malt in there, but everything is pretty subtle. This is basically a candy bar in a bottle.

F: Thick and creamy, as it should be.

O: If you like chocolate your going to love this one, and it is a fantastic dessert beer. If it were available in six packs, I would probably have it around a lot.

Probably the best chocolate beer I've had.

Pours a dark brown almost black color with a nice 1 inch tan colored head that takes a little while to dissipate leaving good lacing down the goblet glass.

Smell is a little weak but I can make out some chocolate malts and the lager yeast smell.

Taste is really good. Those chocolate malts really come through as the dominant taste in this one. Once the chocolate subsides a bit, there is an onrush of sweetness that reminds me of chocolate milk. Chocolate is the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is a bit on the fuller side as you would expect with velvety texture.

Overall, a really good beer. I couldn't drink 20 of them in one sitting but definitely a nice beer to wind down with in the evening during the holidays.

A lighter stout, almost a borderline ale taste. It's on the sweeter side of sweet-bitter notes.

It's just ok. It isn't a whole lot of chocolate and doesn't taste as complex as this beer should.
