Appearance: Black, with a bit of redness. Little to no head.
Aroma: Lots of chocolate and vanilla.
Taste: A dark cocoa dominates the palate, with some vanilla in the background. Some minor booziness.
Mouthfeel: A bit of carbonation, otherwise a medium mouthfeel. Surprisingly easy drinking for a chocolate brew.
Atwater Brewery’s Decadent Chocolate Ale has everything I want in a chocolate beer. The aroma instantly leads me into a chocolate world journey, and the flavor doesn’t disappoint. This brew has loads of chocolate, along with some vanilla and a little bit of booze flavor. It reminds me of a rich, Ghiradelli dark chocolate bar. It’s a brew that’s perfect around a campfire as a dessert beer, and one that’s surprisingly pretty easy to drink.
