Most accurate label I've seen. Just smelling gives you a good idea how strong the chocolate flavor is, and actually drinking is a bit overwhelming the first time around.

Dark brown and opaque with ruby highlights and a beige head of frothy foam that settles quickly. Rich aroma of cocoa and dark malt. Flavors of sweet cocoa upfront, morphs to coffee and marshmallow, notes of cola. Dry and tannic, slightly puckery and talcy. Average beer.
