    GAK! What went on here? Chocolate, rose petal, turkish delight, wheaty, lettuce in the compost, fermented beverage?!? That about describes it I guess, all around really strange. The most defining characteristic of the beer is the intense hot chocolate poweder aroma/taste. In fact, if i come across another bottle, I will take a wit, dump in fake hot chocolate poweder and do a comparative tasting. Until that moment, I must say I value creativity above all else in beer making, especially when it is complemented by skill, as this brewery tends to have, but this is like chicken feet in fish sauce to my palate, nothing jives... perfume and powdered chocolate, touch of wheat, toss in some pilsnerish yeast, and you have this bizzare beverage. Still gets a 6 overall for the balls to bottle this.

    Yet a other beer in a long line of beers I have drank lately that should have never been made. Smell is both good and revolting at the same time. the aroma is filled with overpowering chocolate that smells exactly like chocolate (semi sweet) however as interesting as that aroma is there is the stinky fume of pig barn also wafting up and into my nose making me clinch my teeth. Starting to notice fair amount of cherry in the aroma. And for looks it has a bright dark brown body if that makes any sense with a fairly long lasting cap. The aroma is starting to disgust me. holy supper sweet beer I think I just developed diabetes from that first sip. Flavour is loaded with hot chocolate powder and chocolate covered cherries. Flavour is so sharp its actually hard to drink. this beer is an experiment gone wrong. I gave the last third the dump couldn’t take the sweetness any more.

    this is one of the most bizarre beers I've come across period. Poured out - to my amazement - a crystal clear medium brown with burnt orange tints, a tiny white cap that fizzes out very quickly leaving zero lacing. The aroma is completely messed up and a total surprise - thick fruit and fruity chocolate - nothing, nothing has every smelt like this before. A baffling mix of oranges, chocolate powder, semi-sweet chocolate and roses or some other flower. Either way, it's fresh cut flowers and some greens to go along with it. However, when you transfer this crazy, unique aroma into flavour it doesn't come across as pleasant since now you actually have to consume it. Sharp initially then you get hit by an almost indescribable flavour of perfumes, cocoa, dark caramel, unknown fruit and odd candy sweetness. Highly carbonated, slight sourness or not, dammit, I don't even know anymore with this beer... I'm still drinking it somehow. Not much for after taste and it does leave a thin film in the mouth. Bizarre all the way. When I saw Floris and cholocate on the label I knew this would pretty much be equal to pure experimentation. I may totally hate this but I really have no clue as I'm still lifting up the glass to my lips automatically.

    Bottled (as Floris Chocolat 4.2%). Colour is amber. Aroma is big time rum-raisin and chocolate, with some sweet cherryish hints. Flavour is malts, some rum-raisiny notes which are quite "nonsaying" though. Some very cocoalike flavours. Artificial feeling all the way through, but still, I could drink more of this .)

    Bottle courtesy of HogtownHarry! Actually, I’ve wanted to try this for a while Harry, thanks! So here we go, chocolate beer! Pours hazy browish/orange in the flute. A one inch fizzy white head foams up, and dissipates to a thin ring. Minute lacing. Strong suggestion of milk chocolate in the nose. Aromas are also slightly floral (lavender), candy, and malts. It really smells more like a cooler. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, sour milk, candied raisins, sugared malt. Wow, this is all about the sugar man. FInishes very sweet, slightly watery. Wow, it was tough, but I finished it. Thanks Harry! Abv is 4.2 % listed on bottle.

    Sampled at Vineyards in Ottawa, Ontario. Best before February 2006. This witbier with chocolate pours a hazy caramel-amber colour with an off-white medium head and thin lace, but all around. The soft nose is of chocolate with hints of caramel. Thin-bodied with a slight pasted mouthfeel. The taste is of chocolat and candy, that is not too sweet, and not really bitter. Also in there, is orange mixed in, with a touch of nuts and candy diminishing in the aftertaste. Had this one for dessert, right after having Burger King (oh yeah !)... and it was delicious.

    Light brown color with a nice head that settled quickly. Aroma of cocoa crispies. Taste is a bit thin, like a chocolate pilsener. Not bad though.

    Poured a darker brown color with a very light and smal head. Medincinally sweet aroma. Taste was of dry cocoa, but overly sweet. Interesting as a black and tan with Dixie White Moose, but honestly, I wouldn't give this to my dog.

    It has an horrible cloudy, dirty, brown colour with absolutely no foam. It has a strong aroma of cocoa mixed with slime, stagnant water and subtle notes of dog's shit. Ok, this was for the better part of this beer... The flavour ? the first impression is: overcarbonated, but this fact does not matter for long because what comes just after is inhuman: it has an horrible, artificial sweeties and perfume-like taste with a too long aftertaste of sewer. Awful and revolting. Defining the characteristics of this stuff is a real challenge because every sip is a torture. This has only been brewed to give a new meaning to the word "worst".
