3.53/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a standard tumbler pint glass. Poured with medium vigor to create a half-finger head.

Appearance - dark brown bordering on black with hues of deep walnut wood and subtle hint of red when held up directly to the light. Chocolate mousse-colored head that dissipates within about 30-60 seconds and leaves fair lacing.

Aroma - heavy scent of cocoa nibs, bittersweet chocolate and shadow of nuttiness.

Taste - Starts sweet to semisweet and develops into roasted chocolate. Some hints of dark bread and malt. Promising to begin with, but then the taste just fades away, leaving nothing. Aftertaste is almost imperceptible.

Mouthfeel - suffers from the quickly dissipating taste and leaves no real desire to take the next drink. Finished the beer out of desire not to waste it because it wasn't bad enough for a drain pour.

Overall, I would not buy this again, but I will certainly drink the other two bottles of it that came as part of the beer of the month collection.

3.18/5  rDev -17%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A - Looks great! Poured with a 2 finger tan head and has nice long lasting lacing. Based on this my hopes were high

S - Yikes. Maybe I got a bad batch...but it smelled musty and dusty, almost like mildew. I smelled no chocolate, no milk, no alcohol, nothing but must.

T - Taste is a bit better. Very mild taste. Upfront I taste coconut and light chocolate...that is about it. edit: halfway through the beer, there is a caramel flavor in there too which does improve its taste. For this I am raising my original T rating of 3 to a 3.5

M - Pretty watery, with high carbonation. Despite those characteristics it does have a creamy feel, and it does fill me up quickly. Strange.

O - Hugely disappointed. Will not buy again.

3.8/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle served in a shaker pint glass. Best before August 2014.

Appearance: Black with a thin tan head. Clear mahogany/ruby red at the edges when held up to the light. Some islands of lacing noted.

Smell: Not a lot of aroma to this. Some hints of roasted malts and burnt sugar but that's about it.

Taste: Toasted malt, hint of bittersweet chocolate, some toffee, and a tobacco/smoky bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, approaching creamy. Lively carbonation but not fizzy - scrubs the tongue but there is a hint of stickiness left.

Overall / Drinkability: Full flavored, interesting, and good with desert (chocolate peanut butter banana bread). I suspect it would be a very good base for ice cream floats and probably would go well with a burger also. Not sure I would want more than one per evening though, but I think I would definitely pick up a six pack next time I see it. Other than a weak aroma - a good beer.
