3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours a rich black color. It is one of the best smelling beers I have ever had. Rich chocolate cream, with a hint of malt. I was really excited. The taste is pleasant but boring. It starts off sweet and creamy which is great. Then it goes to lite bitter coffee finish. The taste is not that complex and goes quickly. One of the other beers I just had (chocolate oatmeal stout) was much more complex and had 5 different complex flavors and then had a similar bitter finish. Although that beer was much too bitter at the end.

Poured from cask at Fuel Woodfire Grill in Port Huron, MI.
Pours a motor oil black with a limited amount of tiny bubbles.
Not much on the nose.
Insanely silky mouthfeel with only the smallest bit of carbonation.
Tastes of bitter chocolate and tapers off with an alcohol finish.
