4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft… This beer rocks!… Pours very dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The nose is jam-packed with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. I’ve never experienced this level of intense chocolate in the aroma of a beer treated only with cacao nibs. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor is moderately sweet and very chocolaty. Again, nibs, nibs, nibs, nothing but nibs! Finishes chocolaty and lightly sweet. Very refreshing, yet nourishing. Brazilian cacao is obviously “juiced” and probably illegal in the U.S., so drink it while they got it! World class brew!
