For some reason I've been holding off trying this sucker for a while, but I'm glad I did.
A very dark brown body with some deep, ruby highlights. If held up to the light, even the darkest part is a slightly see-through ruby. Has a good finger and a half of tan head that settles to a slight ring on top of the beer. Leaves some thin, wispy lacing on the side of the glass.
As soon as you pop the cap off of this sucker the aroma starts beating you in the face. The whole room smells like chocolate. Cocoa powder, hot chocolate, bitter chocolate, the whole chocolate clan is in there. I want to microwave it,throw in some marshmellows and top it off with whipped cream and then tell people it is hot chocolate. After that, I would watch them get drunk and have a good laugh at their expense.
Obviously, this tastes like chocolate. A lot. All kinds of chocolate. Up front is the most cocoa-esque flavor, the one that reminds me of hot cocoa. Next is some sweet milk chocolate like a Hershey (insert other milk choclate candy) bar. It moves in the finish towards a more dark chocolate, and then becomes slightly bitter like baker's chocolate. Some vanilla undertones in there, but chocolate definitely kicks vanilla's ass in this one. Is it Kahlua? Hot chocolate? I don't know, they tell me it's beer. Prety good though.
Surprisingly light mouthfeel, I would say about medium bodied. About medium on the carbonation.
At 11% ABV there is no trace of alchol here. One of the most drinkable beers for the ABV I would say. All the chocolatey-ness gets to me, but if you're a chocolate lover, this is a sure "5" for you.
