Bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate, and roast. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is more cocoa. Its pretty strong. I like that. Only downside to this brew is the brown paper bag flavor. The oxidation is pretty strong.

Bottle @ Pat’s. Just about black in color with a thin layer of off-white foam. This could easily be the most chocolatey beer I’ve ever had. Smells of chocolate, cocoa powder, and cocoa liqueuer. Some roast, a hint of coffee, and some dark fruit. There’s a nice sweetness of vanilla and milk chocolate on the tongue. Bitter cocoa powder/nibs. Some chocolate syrup, dark fruit. and toasted nuts.
