3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at IH Wilmington. Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a quarter inch of creamy, mliky tan head that yields thick strands of lacing. Smells of cocoa powder, light milk chocolate and subtle roasted malt. Taste has much more chocolate on the palate than in the aroma. Rich, dry cocoa and milk chocolate up front with an interesting maltiness in the finish. Medium body, very smooth and creamy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black. Not much carbonation. Almost seems flat. Bad keg maybe? The chocolate notes are nice up front but it finishes watery & leaves something to be desired.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ brewpub. Pours dark brown with thin beige head. Aroma was mostly chocolate with very subtle roast notes. Taste is very smooth with chocolate flavors transitioning to a great vanilla finish. Medium mouthfeel and amount of carbonation, which seemed a little much for this style beer.
