Exactly what it should be. Looks like slightly flat coke. Roasted malt scent and some yeasty stale bready-Ness. Mouth is medium feel and not heavy in sugars, but enough to give rise to the taste buds. Taste is yeasty and roasted malt. Some nutty and earth tones. Tap

Bottle, packaged on 2/17/16. Pours an extremely dark brown with a slight tan head, moderate lacing. Burnt chocolate aroma, roasted coffee notes. Full bodied, velvety mouthfeel with a lightly bitter, tongue numbing finish. Excellent.

Dark brown almost black in color. Nice , tanned head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and dark fruits . Moderate sweetness in taste with distinct hoppy notes at the end. I felt slight notes of Belgian yeast in it . Close to dry finish. Delicious beer.

Restrained aroma in a brown black pour. An interesting combination of the best of Belgium - beer and chocolate - that is deliciously different.

Holy crap....this is great. Lots going on here. Dark dark brown, beige head. Dark fruit, coffee, caramel, toffee on the nose. More hop bitterness and Belgian yeast on the tongue...notes of milk chocolate too. Hybrid type beers often go horribly wrong....this is quite the opposite, well done!
