When a beer says chocolate I expect chocolate. This one has no chocolate taste whatsoever. Is it dark like chocolate? Yes. Does it smell like chocolate ? Very slightly. Does it taste like chocolate ? Not at all. No sweetness at all. Now if Brooklyn is trying to market this beer as "chocolate" based solely on the fact that this beer is dark like chocolate that is fine. But I was disappointed that there was not much chocolate taste at all especially compared to Young's or Smith's. Not sure why it's rated so highly.
The 10% ABV however is fantastic. You can taste the strength of the alcohol and is the redeeming quality of this beer for me.
Drank my second bottle a few weeks after my initial review. The chocolate is more prevalent now and so is the dark coffee flavor. A bit sweeter than I remembered. I'm liking this beer now! Still not as good as Samuel Smith's but really holds it's own in its own special way.
