3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Went to the brewery for a four beer flight and ended up with a mini-growler of this one to take home. Nothing dissapointing but this one stands out. Deep, dark, rich, subtle chocolate notes, balanced tartness and low CO2 make this a perfect winter sipper. Nice head on this one too- decent retention for a small pour. Not super heavy for a stout but definitely not a summer beer. Well balanced, tasty and really interesting. A winner. Could have even more chocolate notes and I wouldn’t complain.

Adequate, a little on the thin/watery side, when you name a beer ’CHOCOnaut’ I expect to get some chocolate!
