Slutfest! Light chocolate aroma? Flavor is light chocolate? Send out a search party, there seems to be a beer missing. Maybe some odd spicing. Light body. Shockingly little going on here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark amber, almost brown with a big fizzy head that quickly fades. The aroma is fruity sweet with a bit of spices. The flavor is similar with the spices showing up on the swallow. A bit to fizzy for me but quite refreshing.
