Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head that left no lacing. Smells like a Tootsie roll with a little bit of char. Tastes like liquified chocolate (milk and bitter sweet), char, roasted malts, vanilla and a mildly bitter finish. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, creamy mouth feel.

MIlk chocolate, milk, a touch sour, a bit of smoke/tobbacco, fake sugar, a hint of dark chocolate, That sour note along with that tobbacco is really ruining them one.

Wow this is terrible. I'm not sure if the sour is an infection, the bottle gave no signs of it and I don't get any off notes on the nose. The nose is all chocolate, caramel, and has some nice dessert like notes.

Aged for 4 years from bottling.

A: Excellent opaque blackish brown body, almost no head that quickly dissipated after a minute.

S: Mega chocolate, subdued malts, sweetness, char.

T: Earthy chocolate smashes you in the face, followed by the roasted malts and milk stout profile.

M: Super full body, sticky, cloying. Good carb.

O: I had this a few years ago, and then again last week. I realized that, while this is a great novelty item, I just don't like chocolate bars in my beer that much. Years ago I thought it was great, the second time around, I know that it tasted almost the same, but it was just too cloying. I would definitely recommend to anyone who has not tried it though.

Pitch black with a finger of beige head.

Smells of milk chocolate. Chocolate milk. Chocolate mousse. You get the picture. Deep and rich, milk and chocolate together.

Tastes of chocolate with a big backbone of maltiness, a hint of tobacco, and black liquorice. Reminds me of chocolate liqueur.

Medium body, slightly oily, with moderate carbonation. Feels very light for the ABV.

Got at LCBO, drinking in Muskoka, Feb 16th, 2018. Great look and smell. A little tar like on the taste, with a decent mouth feel.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Look - dark brown, almost black with a thin off-white head.

Aroma - a strong blast of chocolate. Almost like a chocolate cake batter. A little sweetness and roastiness.

Taste - taste follows the smell. Lots of chocolate, but a bit more subdued. A bit of malt and caramel and a subtle, very pleasant bitterness. Incredibly drinkable, especially for 10%, absolutely no hint of booziness.

Feel - full bodied and velvety with medium carbonation.

Overall - delicious. An adult milkshake if there ever was one. Would definitely look for his one again.

Released at Systembolaget, Sweden in January 22 - 2016. Best before december 30 - 2017.
This beer has been resting in my beer cellar for 24 months now.
Let's pour it!

Dark brown beer with a thin beige, head.

Nose: Vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa beans, caramel malt, lactose and chocolate candy. Did I mention chocolate?
Taste: Roasted malt, milk chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, caramel and little hint of dark fruit (raisin & plum).
Mouth: Full body. Sweet an chocolaty. Medium carbonation. Sweet and dry ending.

This is absolutely fantastic!
A chocolate milkshake as a beer... So good and nothing tells me this is a beer with 10% ABV.

Really dark brown color with brownish head. Aroma has cocoa drink, lactose sweetness and some cheap milk chocolate. Taste is sweet at first with lactose and cocoa drink flavor, finish has slightly bitter dark chocolate. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Finish is quite watery and the chocolate flavors seem quite cheap and fake.

A- Black with a large light tan head.

O- A great chocolately stout.
