3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Fort Collins Brewery. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the normal Double Chocolate, so I’m not overly optimistic on this one. Pours a black appearance with a light brown head. Actually a delicious, roasted but not burnt black coffee, thick cocoa, a touch herbal aroma. A touch grainy mouth feel. A bit acidic/fruity quality in the flavor from the coffee with additional notes of cocoa, milk, and roast. This one does seem a fair amount better than its sibling.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at brewery. Black with a thin khaki head, and a magnificent aroma of chocolate, freshly brewed coffee, and subtle roastiness. Flavor is pretty dang big with big palate-wrecking notes of coffee, sweet milk chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, and even more roasted coffee. Dark sweet and a perfect day-ender.
