3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Stateline Brewery, South Lake Tahoe, CA.
Black colour with a small tan head.
The aroma is chocolate... chocolate and chocolate sweetness. Maybe mild malt there too. The flavour is chocolate liqueur. Some roasted malt and mild bitter hops there too but the chocolate liqueur is very dominating. Rich.

Thanks Vanja, Iznogud & Co.! Almost black body, dark head. Nothing too remarkable, typically nice. Iíve heard nothing but superlatives about this one from those in the Croatian crew whoíve tried it, but even that didnít prepare me for the sublime, wonderful, beautiful cocoa/milk chocolate aroma that wafted from the glass... The same thankfully continued into the taste, only buried in layers of caramel. Not much hops, but this didnít need hops. Wow, wow wow wow! Beer of the day and the competition was awesome!
Note: City of origin was apparently San Josť so this batch was brewed at Hermitage I guess.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2015 Looks like coke in a glass. Smells of treacle vanilla and prunes. Taste corresponds with the smell with the addition of a coffee taste. Slightly sweet, but has a light fizz that cuts through the sweetness. Nice stout. (K) (Re-rated N)
