3.8/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle in Sam Adams glass
no date, but in the fridge since the spring so ~9 months

A: Crystal clear with dark ruby highlights when held up to a light, but otherwise looks completely black. A very thing tan head and a little bit of lace on top.
S: A definite sweetness that I would not say is chocolate except for the label.
T: Chocolate milkshake, with some extra chocolate syrup on top. I am somewhat amazed at the amount of chocolate character they got in this beer. There is a slight bitterness that seems to be hop driven vs. roasted malts, I think I would like a little bit of roasted malt or some black patent, basically I think I would like this more as a porter/stout. Very rich, but not cloying.
M: Crisp and creamy at the same time, tingly carbonation.
O: A very good beer, kind of regretting I did not drink/review this one earlier, but not really a summer beer. The very distinct chocolate is great, makes me want to try to brew a porter with cacao nibs. A great addition to the winter variety pack, I need to check the store soon. Very worth trying. An excellent dessert beer.
