4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Rustyham. Pours deep brown black with a dissipating brown head. Aroma of dried cocoa and ale esters. Medium to full bodied with semi soft carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, dark roasted malts, and mild bittering hops. What made this one really interesting is that you picked up some nutshell flavors, and that it was not overly sweet. Semi dry finish. Very well done.

Had on draft at the Funky Buddha.
Strong chocolate nose and flavor dominates this beer.
The smell and taste are on point. Out of all the chocolate beers this is one of my favorites that are available.
The only thing that I would change about this beer is add about this beer is the mouthfeel. While it is solid I would like more of a thicker consistency.
Overall one of my favorite Buddha Beers that have been released so far.
