Picked up a 22 oz. bomber for a couple of bucks at the Just Beer brewery. Pours dark brown with a think tan head. Malt, cocoa, and a little dark fruit in the aroma. Taste is a little sweet, with roast, coffee, and of course a little cocoa. Creamy mouthfeel. This beer is really smooth and drinkable, and above all really good.

Had this on tap at Rose Alley. Pours dark brown. Aroma is of chocolate, malts, and yes cocoa. Flavor is the same with the cocoa really coming through. Leaves a cocoa/malt finish. This was much better than I was expecting. Great winter brew.

A beautiful deep ruby-brown brew with a light tan head. Good carbonation. Light malty aromas. Flavor is wonderfully malty and smooth with just a hint of chocolate. Not overly sweet. Goes down nicely! Good Job Just Beer!
