3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Head almost non-existant. Very dark red brown almost black body. Lowely smooth and pleasant coffee cocoa caramel aroma. Flavor mild and round cofrfee cocoa. Maybe the beer I had just before this was just too much more spicy and hoppy. Normally I would consider the Avery beers to be hoppy as well. This one seemed not to be. Low carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste.

Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a hearty treacle and chocolate aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and molasses, and is imbued with that unclassifiable taste characteristic that is common to most Avery brews. The body seems thin at first, but expands as the beer warms.
