Poured from can to stout glass. Dark chocolate color with mocha head. Dissolves to small cap. Aroma and flavor similar, roasted malts, bitter coffee and cocoa. Creamy mouthfeel, feels thicker when drank from can than glass. Enjoyable.

This didn't do it for me. Thin head that fell flat quickly. Decent chocolate taste that didn't linger too long but not as rich tasting as I would have expected with the name. Was expecting a sort of desert beer but maybe would go better with a chocolate desert. Have three cans left and they will probably sit in fridge for a while

Appearance - 4.5/5
When I first cracked the can open, it fizzed out a bit. Quite disappointed about that. It's been sitting still in my fridge for at least a week. Anyway, very dark ruby-black. Lots and lots of bubbly dark tan foam. It does look appealing, I must admit. Eventually the head dies down to a thinnish layer.

Smell - 2.5/5
Metallic, perhaps a bit of cocoa. Some other strange smell which reminds me of manure. Not a great smell. Luckily I don't mind manure smell that much. And the smell is mostly really the metallic.

Taste - 3/5
My first reaction is that the taste is metallic. This is the first beer I've reviewed from a can, so perhaps canned beer always has that metallic aspect?? There is definitely some cocoa aspects, but not nearly as strong as I was expecting. Overall, not something I'd want again.

Mouthfeel - 3.25/5
Smooth, medium-high amount of medium intensity carbonation. Medium-full in body.

Overall - 3/5
I got this beer due to a recommendation from a friend. Turns out we have different sets of taste buds.

Seriously dark brown with a dark tan head. Retention is weak, drops to a thin film in a minute. Leaves scattered lacing behind.
Smell is toast, cardboard, coffee.
Taste is toasted malt, cardboard, coffee, light vanilla. Decent but no more.
Medium body, light effervescence. Drying finish.
