very good. Balanced, long flavour; notes of berries and dark fruit. Lots of taste given the low ABV

Poured from a bottle. The head is a little disappointing, but it has okay lacing and rich brown color that is appealing. It smells better than it tastes, I donít think that the organic does it any favors.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Swiss Louis on Pier 39 in San Fran. Poured from my bottle a light black with tan head. The aroma was bitter sweet chocolate, malts, and yeast. Taste was light chcocolate, a malty backbone. Overall a decent beer, I was wishing for more of the chocolatey bittersweet to come through though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2015 Pours a deep rich dark brown. Nice dark tan head with long lasting retention. Smells of chocolate and a hint of coffee and wheat. However thin on the palate and tastes a little weak suprisingly.

"i would not call it "richly textures" or "charismatic", as Bison claims. This beer was a bit of a thin-bodied disappointment, as Iím usually crazy about the style. Underwhelming all around for a choc. stout, it isnít one Iíll buy again."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single from total wine. Relatively muted flavors and a bit watery. Some roasty malt and rich chocolate flavors. Aroma is a touch of roasty malt. Finish is a little bittersweet. Ok but absolutely better beers out there.
