kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2010
Had on tap at Big River Grille in downtown Chattanooga. Poured to dark brown color with a thin tan head that stuck around to mid-glass and left a little lacing. Both the nose and taste were predominantly chocolate, with just a tad of roasted nuts and coffee. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and almost chewy sweet, but enjoyable, with a finish that was long and somewhat sticky.
