3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at the Lake Country Beer and Music Festival. Poured deep brown with a fine head that stuck to the glass well. The aroma was all about the chocolate and coffee with light vanilla sweetness backing it up.. really rocking the sweet coffee/mocha impression that John mentioned. The flavor was along the same lines with a little more of the coffee represented.. light toasted caramel and milk chocolate not far behind.. on the sweet end and quite tasty. Medium-bodied on the palate and sweet with only a roasty malt backbone to keep this from entirely appearing as a coffee drink.

I don’t really know how to judge this one. I wasn’t so sure I was tasting a beer. I got coffee and espresso tastes. A little caramel and cocoa. Not that impressive. Sorry.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2008 Pours thick and creamy/dark. Aroma is amazing of Mocha espresso. The flavor is really good, sweet chocolate with a bitter chocolate espresso.Nice smooth finish all the way down. Really really good, i feel very fortunate having had this.

Looks like a chocolate milk coffee. Aroma of mocha, butterscotch and light chocolate. Taste is more of the same. Creamy texture that has some sourness and tartness to it and finishes mildly astringent.

Chocolate milk looking with a somewhat fluffy, Light chocolate colored head. Scents of light sweet coffee, lightly roasted malt, and milk chocolate. Thicker, lightly sticky feel. Flavors match up with the aromas. Lots of sweet chocolate and coffee. The hints of roasted malt and touch of caramel take it back to a beer state, while teetering of a sweet coffee/mocha drink. I really enjoyed this as a night cap.
