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

Appearance: Pours a dark brown/black color with a short tan head and some lacing

Smell: Chocolate, and some strange booze scent

Taste: Chocolate up front, then some carob and toffee. The unusual boozy flavor shows up on the finish. Some dark fruits in there as well

Mouthfeel: Medium body, light carbonation

Overall: Not bad, but not as chocolatey as the name would imply. Also I don't notice much sweetness in spite of the lactose. For what would seem like a similar brew to Moo Hoo, I'm a bit disappointed. If the weird boozy flavor wasn't there, I would like this better in spite of the low amounts of chocolate.

A-deep jet black in color pouring two fingers of a thick, bubbly head that is a dark coffee color. The head lingers for some time but leaves virtually no lacing on the glass

S-big roasted malt hits the nose first, some faint chocolate, lots of a pale malt, with some citrus towards the finish

T-pretty much follows the nose, roasted malt, hints of cocoa, pale malt and citrus follows. Nothing stands out and is slightly watered down in taste

M-relatively lighter in body for a stout, very smooth and slick on the back of the throat and a light amount of carbonation

D-average at best, I would not recommend this beer, mostly roasted malt and seems watered down

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Dark brown, an inch of tan head tat quickly thins out to just a coating.

S: Smells like Nesquik chocolate milk.

T: Hopped out Nesquik. Nothing more, nothing less. A little burnt chocolate.

M: Thin, watery. A little creaminess after lingering.

OVERALL: Not done very well, but not a beer that I would disregard. It's worth drinking, but I wouldn't do a six pack.

NOTE: Live review.
