3.25/5 rDev -19.4%
color - I'd say black if it were not. It is definitely a brown color but you can not tell unless you look at it in a glass for a while. No head. Very Opaque.
Taste - good. Not a great chocolate beer. The chocolate in it is not a good taste. I'll probably have it again but not soon.
Smell - Nose isn't working lately.
Mouthfeel - nice and heavy as it should be with this type of beer in my opinion.
Overall - One of the few beers where I put the mouthfeel as a bigger draw to have this beer again than the taste. I usually care about taste most and smell a distant second.

“Chocolate malt and real dark chocolate are combined with Young's award-winning rich dark beer to craft a satisfyingly indulgent, but never overly sweet experience. Silky rich & creamy smooth.”
Very black and very opaque, with low levels of carbonation. Produced only a quarter inch of yellow head. The retention was okay; dissipated within a couple minutes, but a nice ring lace stuck around for much longer.
Hard to say. On the malts, I got just a sweet, roasty chololate aroma, and the hops had very little leafy scent, if any.
Whoa. The chocolate is very prevalent. Also some roast at the back and maybe some caramel or toffee. Again the hops were hard to detect, maybe a little leafy or grassy taste.
Flirting with the heavy side. It had good carbonation for its style. A smooth drink with a touch of a buttery feel. Screams “Dessert”
I had this sitting in my fridge for 5 days while I went out of town. While I am impressed with this beer , I may have hyped it up a little in my own head, maybe a touch let down. Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice beer. There is a little aroma of chocolate but man does it ever come out in the tasting. I also probably served it too cold; I really should set up a dedicated beer fridge. Even still, the aroma only intensified mildly as it warmed. Was not overly sweet and was certainly indulgent, just as the label claims. Would make an excellent dessert beer. I also think that it would be a fantastic beer on nitrogen, just to amplify the creamy texture they were trying to achieve. Overall I was very happy with this superb beer.
