On tap at EBF 3/16/13.
Chocolatey roasty stout with light to moderate Belgian yeasty phenols. I would have liked a cleaner yeast, but thatís my hang up not the brewers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
FIRST rating of this. On draft at Captain Lawrence. A fairly astringent and mellow ale, with some cocoa bitterness. Pretty good, but not the best chocolate brew Iíve had.
