330 ml brown bottle, best before date clipped in back label.
Pours a caramel tan color, thin but long lasting whitish head. Thin, sporadic sheets of lace.
The smell was the best thing about this one. A sweet and milk chocolate aroma, a very nice smell of amaretto liquer was also dominant. Chocolate flavor comes through nicely, grains and yeast are also present. This was suprisingly chocolaty, but not the thick rich flavor of a stout. This was more like a milk chocolate and more amaretto / hazelnut rounded out the taste. The mouthfeel and body were light and thin, but that matched the lighter flavors. Very interesting, lots of chocolate. I have introduced a few friends too this, and no one can beleive beer can have such different and unique characteristics.
A small glass for me is enough.

Bright dark amber color. Chocolate cordial aroma. A classic baking chocolate/cocoa finish that lingers on. Not bad.

Brown colour, a lot of acid. Strong chocolate flavour. For fruit beer lovers.

33cl bottle into Floris pilsner type class. Amber in color. Unique deep chocolate aroma. Unexpected, considering the color. This smell is usually coming from a stout. Taste is chocolate, but not chocolatey, per say. Weird having this flavor in a thin body, sweet, maybe too much so. Probably a perfect beer for someone that "doesn't like beer". Otherwise...not so good.

Oh, come on guys. It's not all that bad.

For the guy who says this is worse than Budweiser or Heineken or Stella, you're full of it, or maybe you actually like that kind of beer.

I've never tried another chocolate lambic before, but this beer is to a chocolate stout as a tootsie roll is to a Ferrerro Rocher.

And sometimes I feel like chewing a tootsie roll.

In fact, one reviewer said its "tootsie roll-like". I'd disagree. The flavor is 90% identical to a tootsie roll. And tootsie rolls taste like beery synthetic chocolate. It's a totally different flavor than Nesquick chocolate, which is to me what Rogue Double Chocolate tastes like, with a double helping of sugar (yuck).

With a light mouthfeel, this is a beer I actually enjoy on occasion. Still prefer it over almost all fruit lambics beside Lindeman's Kriek.

Thing is, lambics just aren't very good beers in general.

Hazy amber colour, poor head with no retention. Artificial aroma, with chocolate essence and darkj fruits. Thin palate, light body. Taste of chocolate, dark fruits and cider. Easy drinking, but nothing really special.

I really didn't like the Chocolate taste - however mixed with Floris Kriek (Cherries) you get an amazing tasting Black Forrest Gateaux beer
