This was recommended to me by a dark beer drinking friend that said I had to try it.

A - Nice black color typical of a stout. Very clear for a dark beer. Awesome nitro induced super fine off-white head that seemed to stay forever and trail lacing down the entire glass.

S - Tons of chocolate both milk and dark with roasted and malty smells bringing up the back. The nitro can seemed to really accentuate the rich chocolate tones.

T - A very chocolately and sweet brew as the name suggests very similar to a hot chocolate that was cold or a chocolate milk shake without the milk or as much sugar. There is a roasted flavor that comes second and some alcohol third but the chocolate nature holds supreme. Only a slight inclination that you are even drinking a beer since it is really sweet and roasty. Some bitterness from the roasted malt but no discernible hops. A good desert beer if that is all you are going to have.

M - Thick mouth-feel it is sticky and cloying that coats your mouth in the dark beer. Really no balance and I couldn't drink more than one . Moderate "nitration" that makes it silky and smooth but the grain bill makes it sticky.

Overall, a good beer if you want a sweet cocoa inspired beer that is very novel. Similar to a milk stout with the sweetness and mouth-feel but is very chocolatey for a beer. It's definitely not my favorite but I know that there would be a time and a place to have this again. I did love the nitro can with plastic balls inside. Getting drunk while everyone is drinking a milk shake seems like a good time for this beer.

Glass- Imperial Pint
