750 from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Pours a really dark ruby with a four finger foamy beige/tan head. Smells like chocolate wheat. Medium body with very creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark - like a stout with spice. There is some residual wheatiness, but it’s like a spiced, lightly chocolate stout. Extremely tasty ale. De Proef scored heavily with this one. Just excellent.
