If you like chocolate stouts like I do, you'll love this one. One of the best I've ever had.

My personal favorite from Atwater. Very silky smooth feel because of the low carbonation. Sweet dark chocolate aromas make the mouth water! Great taste from start to finish. Your typical sweet, not bitter, dark chocolate taste turns almost into a root beer-ish middle, and finishes smooth with more cocoa tastes. Wonderful beer from a wonderful town.

Tastes very similar, if not exactly, like the Vanilla Java Porter that Atwater also makes. This flavor was great excellent - you can sense a medium coffee taste hinted with a vanilla creamer. I would rank this in my top 5 because it's such a great combination of everything intertwined together. I could drink this pretty steady. Est. 168 calories per bottle at 5.5% ABV.

Dark Chocolate Ale pours a black color with a very small head. There is a strong dark semi-sweet chocolate flavor. The taste has a semi-sweet dark chocolate flavoring. Very nice bold chocolate flavors, and very easy to drink, with a nice body. Overall WOW, a very strong dark-chocolate bomb.
