It pours a dark brown color. I poured aggressively into a tulip glass and got about 1 inch of foamy coffee colored head that fully subdued within 1 minute, leaving behind some nice lacing.

Heavy on the chocolate smell with coffee in the backround, imagine that. The chocolate smelled like baker's chocolate.

Same on the taste. The chocolate dominated the coffee tones on this and has a Hersey Syrup flavor. It reminded me of a chocolate phosphate. The coffee is there with roasted malts, but both are muted by the sweetness. I was hoping for more balance with the coffee flavors but they were overshadowed by the artificial tasting chocolate.

This is a little thin, in my opinion, and the sweetness leaves a slightly bitter filmy feeling on my tounge. The aftertaste was a little bit of a turnoff for me.

This doesn't get any bonus points from me on drinkability. On top of being too sweet and leaving a bad aftertaste, the alcohol really shows up hard and clashes with the flavor. It does calm down a little as it warms, though.

I've never tried chokolat, but I have tried jahva and I think jahva is much more enjoyable. I did like this and was glad I tried it, but it had too many distractions along the way.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Dark but not midnight dark. Strong scent of chocolate with a slight hint of coffee. Taste is pretty much the same. I'd like a bit less chocolate and a bit more coffee. This is a real dessert beer. I recognize the quality for those who like this type of beer, but this is a bit too dessert-like and not enough beer-like for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 22oz bottle into snifter.

1/2F tan head hovering over a deep, dark brown body. No lacing.

Smell was, well... chocolate. Milk chocolate bar, and unfortunately nothing else. Until it warmed, then an alcoholic quality picked up.

Flavor was slightly more complex. Toffee, dark chocolate syrup, and Baileys (milkey liquer).

Mouthfeel was pretty smooth and thick, with very little afterburn considering the ABV.

Sip-purs, no doubt. Take your time with this. Ok, but far too one-dimentional to be one of my favorites.
