Flip top bottle with carob. Wasn’t expecting much but this beer really works. Part of the Downtown LA Beer Crawl Italian Beer seminar led by Tomm Carroll. Light chocolate notes with a slight creaminess too.

dinkle50 (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Dark pour with a small head that hangs around for a while. Aroma of roasted malt. Some nuttiness in there too. Creamy mouth. Taste has some chocolate notes and some grain. Nice roast in there too. Slight vanilla too.

Bottle. Pours deep amber to brown with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor of chocolate and coffee. Balanced, smooth and lots of chocolate.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2012
33cl bottle from Beer City, BB 10/2013. Brune foncée, col beige disparaissant vite. Arôme est somptueux avec ces graines de caroube prenant le dessus de façon très agréable, note de malt grillé/café avec une pointe d’épice et profile choco. En bouche, cacao/caroube bien présent accompagné d’un profile épais d’avoine donnant un léger profile grain/épicé. Palais est huileux avec ce fini de caroube allant vers un léger réglisse. Le tout est sec sur des notes de café avec un fini léger de houblon en amertume. Un régal.

500 ml swingtop. Pours black with a fair tan head. Nose is chock full of cocoa with a hint of something like cinnamon, but comes off more herbal. Dark chocolate and baking cocoa flavors, another hint of that cinnamon-but-herbal flavor, slight touch of anise. tasty. Soft bodied and enjoyable, but... I dunno. Didn’t "do it" for me overall.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Pours black from the bottle with lively carbonation and a creamy head. Hops are stagnant. Took considerable warming for the chocolate notes to come out. Hop bitterness cuts first followed by chocolate then roasted malts. Finish is stale. I hope this is a bad bottle, not a bad recipe.

HonkeyBra (3384) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2012
750 ml bottle. Black pour with small tan head. Aroma of mild funk, mild sourness, chocolate, roast. Flavor has a sour twinge, followed by an envelope of chocolate, roast, dry oreo cookies. Mouthfeel is slick and oily. Finishes with a bit of dark chocolate and carob. Interesting for sure. But still odd.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 4, 2012
On bottle. The chocolate smell is very strong. Black colour, no froth and low carbonation. Absolutely not sickening. So it is drinkable enough. Fruity aroma, with a light malt and caramel taste other than the chocolate taste. Very pleasant drinking.
