Genesee gets a bad rap from beer snobs, but as an unapologetic fan of their Creme Ale, we suggest giving them another look. Over the past few years, Genny has been producing some quality brews that would surprise many craft beer drinkers if they didn’t look at the label before trying them.

As part of its specialty Pilot Batch series, this Rochester, New York brewery recently released a Dark Chocolate Scotch Ale, so we’re going to treat this beer like we would any other and give it a fair shake in this week’s review.

Massive Beer Reviews is an award-winning YouTube beer review, brewery, and culture show based out of Northeastern Pennsylvania. With almost 20 years in the craft beer game, we aim to cover all styles, but pull no punches when it comes to our opinions on the beers we cover.

Beer is inherently a subjective subject, so while we make enjoy something more than you or vice versa, we can – many more times than not – tell the difference and differentiate between a beer we don’t like and a beer that is made badly, which is typically illustrated in the reviews.

While we take our show, comments, and approach seriously, we also know a stick-up-the-butt viewpoint on the lovely art that is beer is not what we want to portray, nor something we would want to watch ourselves, so keep on the lookout for blue language, random silliness, maybe a little bit of drunkenness, and some headstrong opinions.

We encourage watchers’ input and love a good debate, so if you see or hear something you love, hate, or anything in-between, feel free to reach out to us in the comments section, through e-mail, or on any of the various social media platforms listed below!
