Dear chocolate ale,

So this chocolate ale thing is a really big deal. It’s seasonal, but last year, they didn’t release it. But yay 2014! I love beer and I love this beer.

When I heard about it, I imagined it would taste like a chocolate stout (which is silly because ‘ale’ is in the name), but its chocolatey taste is delightfully luxe and refreshing. It’s probably gone now, but I need to get my hands on a bottle. I need it.
