Tasting at ChrisO’s. Light haze on this dark brown - red beer, small pale tan head. Palate is airy and smooth. Light fine carbonation. Semi dry. Smooth malts, lots of chocolate but it tastes like cheap dark chocolate. Light tangy dark fruits. Light dry finish with a modestly bitter linger. Okay.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12oz, at Gaasa. A dark brown to black beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has chocolate, cocoa powder, some coffee and roasted hints. Quite similar flavor, too much on the cocoa side, with a lasting finish. Soft and velvety on the palate, pleasantly carbonated. Overall, too much on the cocoa side, but quite decent anyway. 140501
