Tap sample. Poured dark reddish brown color with an average creamy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt sweet aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout brew that exceeded my expectations.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro sample from the brewpub side. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a small beige head. Initially creamy nose. Notes of milk and dark chocolate, roasted malts, and earth. Fairly straightforward. Just chocolaty. Medium-full bodied, with a roasty mouthfeel that is almost bitter. Moderate carbonation. Very good, but the regular Sweet Chocolate Love is my preference of the two.
