3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wally’s, LA: Pours dark brown with creamy head. Aroma is vanilla and hazelnuts. Seriously, if you rate this beer and fail to mention the vanilla, you need to rerate this. Taste is sweet, with plenty of the above flavors, plus some chocolate and loads of sugar.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
THANKS! More than half of a 355 ml. bottle. Bottle is gorgeous as with all Almanac beers. Dark brown, creamy mocha head. Sweet cocoa butter (or at least how I imagine cocoa butter tastes like), sweet sugar, chocolate syrup, exotic sugar,… Taste is pretty much liquid cocoa butter (same comment), exotic sugar, chocolate syrup, cacao beans, creamy mocha, light bitterness in the back, tastes more like actual cacao beans / etc. than extracts or artificial stuff. Body is a bit lighter than I would have preferred. Really reminds me of ST Choklat, bit lighter than I prefer for this kinds of beers to be but very lovely all the same.
