Pours very dark with a small head. Good level of smokiness to it, though it was poured a little warm for me.

Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large creamy light brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and a fruity finish. The taste is chocolate, tart cherries, stone fruits and a slightly vegetal note. Medium bodied and very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Aliviaís. Sits garnet brown in the glass with ruby edges and one finger of sandstone tan head. Nose shows a light roasty character with notes of toasted grain and chocolate. Some fruity esters coming through and a hint of diacetyl. Flavor is well represented by the aroma in that you taste everything you smell and vice versa. Toasty with notes of semis-sweet bakers chocolate and herbal hops. Is the alcohol correctly listed here? Didnít seem like 6% and it does say low alcohol

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
draft. Pours brown with medium thin tan head. Chocolate and dark fruit aroma. Flavor is quite sweet, tastes like soda with chocolate thrown in. Medium light body and thin texture, soft carbonation, and abrupt finish. Goes down like flat soda. Interesting overall, not bad.

Thanks to bmanning for opening this growler to start off a recent tasting. Served in a snifter.
Pours near black with a short tan head that leaves behind a tad bit of lacing and has a nice tan collar throughout the brew. The nose is pretty nice with a bit of roast and chocolate plus some mild German yeast characteristics. A bit of banana in there, though not really any clove. They certainly hit their description, though Iím not sure how well it works. The flavor is fairly roasty, though it is pretty light as well. Faint dark chocolate notes throughout as well as a lingering yeast presence. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is pretty good. Certainly unique.

Old note, @ Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet, roasty, cola, chocolate. Dark orangy brown color, pinhead and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Tasty, easy to drink, definitely got the cola and moon pie notes, fun brew.

Draught at Sandwhich. Pours like RC Cola with just a tad more body. Kind of a light bodied brown ale, easy drinking. Chocolate husks are present but not overwhelming. Lacking any sort of direction or complexity. An easy sipper which I guess fits the name if you have some work you gotta get done in the afternoon.

Dark brown pour with tan head and some lacing. Aroma of chocolate and some malt, flavor is very watery and thin. Definitely donít get the moon pie flavors at all.
