4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick black with a good khaki head and lacing. Aroma is big chocolate with some nuttiness, vanilla and a little coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate with some nuttiness and something like pie crust and mocha flavored coffee. Sort of like a chocolate covered baklava with a cup of mocha. Mouthfeel is very creamy and full bodied with a low medium carbonation. Finishes with a bit of sweetness. Borders on being too sweet but doesn’t cross that line. Rich flavors that complimented the s’more I had with it sitting around a camp fire.

On tap black with dark beige foam. Taste is chocolate and coffee with chocolate much more so. Smooth with good body starts and finishes well with no hint of alcohol. A good beer but for to my taste a bit to sweet, evoking a faint hint of chocolate milk.
