This beer is listed as retired, but I drank it 3 days ago at the brewery? Anyway, it was delicious. Dark and chocolatey, only a little roasty and not cloyingly sweet although the Hershey's syrup they use is definately the main player. I liked it enough to have another. If you can envision chocolate milk as a beer, this is it.

Had this on tap at the brewpub. You can defintely tell this is made with chocolate additive. Watery consistency, very faint roast flavor, but the chocolate stands out the most. Not that it's overdone, but in the absence of any other real flavors, the chocolate stands out. Very fine cabonation leads to a sub-par mouthfeel. It paired well with the food, I suppose, but otherwise it was an unimpressive brew.
