2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Stateside Craft on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. An almost black beer with moderate light tan head and faint nose of chocolate. Frankly, I’m not raving on this one, compared to other raters. I’m finding a thin bodied watery beer. Chocolate, yup. Not much else. 2.6.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. Milk chocolate and light nut aromas emanate from the nearly opaque, oily red brown beer. Thick, creamy tan head tops it off and a thick surface is retained throughout. Lots of lace is left behind. The taste combines medium amounts of sweet with light bitterness. The oily, medium bodied beer is nearly flat with only a light zip. Orange, coffee, and caramel flavors fill out the body and it finishes with a creamy, lactose, and milk chocolate quality. Orange and cream flavors lightly fill the aftertaste.
