Aroma is rich with chocolate and roasty notes. Flavor is a bit less well rounded and just kind of hits me the wrong way, unfortunately.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown/black pour, some spotty carbonation and a really nice aroma of cereal and light nutty barely noticeable coffee. Flavor is caramel/toffee light thin body and a sweet finish. Wasn’t sure what to expect from this beer, but it was really nice!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown black with a off white soapy looking head that fades. Aroma is strong maple syrup and tootsie rolls with roasted malt too. Taste is watery chocolate and maple syrup along with chalky malt. Palate is rather thin and chalky. The smell of this is amazing, but that is about it. This is a good beer, but after the smell I was expecting to be blown away!

Draft. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted dark chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium dark chocolate flavor with a medium dark chocolate bittersweet finish of average duration. Interesting beer.

Great creamy chocolate flavor. Well roasted taste. Medium bodied though the flavor calls for a heavier feel.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent beer but very disappointing. The aroma was awesome. A big full blast of dark chocolate made my mouth water. Pour was a decent deep dark brown but just a few patches of bubbles for a head. Taste was very disappointing after the big aroma. Weak and thin with not much flavor. The beer is almost devoid of flavor except for a slightly bitter roasted maltiness. The big strong carbonation drowns out the flavor even more. If the flavor was half as good as the aroma this would be a great beer.
