Michelob Celebrate Chocolate pours to a light reddish brown color with a light creamy head and a very fruity, slightly chocolaty nose. Taking a sip, you can readily taste the chocolate up front along with some hints of fruity raisin and prune. Thus, the beer starts out with so much promise-and then quickly falls on its face.
That’s because those alluring flavors are quickly thinned out by the watery body. Indeed, you quickly see this is a Michelob beer as the flavor of that brew is readily apparent. The finish is thin, too, albeit a little warm from the alcohol, and as the slightly roasty chocolate flavor reasserts itself, it only accentuates the sparse body and does not work well at all. A rather unpleasant aftertaste is left on the palate.
If this is your first chocolate beer, you should know there are much better examples out there. Very disappointing, and not at all a true representative of the sublime marriage chocolate and beer can be.
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
