3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured to NB globe.
A: Pours a chocolate beer with little head development. Thin film of tiny bubbles, which are light graham in color.
S: Chocolate malts, dark grains. Hollow grainy. Little/no hop nose. Slightly creamy scent.
T: Yum! I was surprised by the nice toastiness of this beer. I admittedly had low expectations, which likely fosters my admiration, but this beer is nice. Light cocoa, malts, milky flavor. Touch of a metallic finish on this. As I take more his off this, I like it less. Has a bit of a burnt flavor as it warms. Almost a sour flavor in here.
M: Decent medium body with medium/low carbonation provides a effervescence I didn’t anticipate. Nice.
D: Very drinkable. Again, I was surprised by this beer, and would be happy to recommend to others.

Muddy dark brown. Chocolate is big. Med bodied and slight bitter hop. Slightly mild carbonation. Nice body throughout. Not as good as bayern dragon breath.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of some chill trader bro. Pours a fairly clear reddish black appearance with a brown head. Fairly roasted malty, nutty, light apple fruity, caramel, toffee aroma. Caramel, roasted pecan, toffee, a touch smoky, light fruity flavor that finishes a touch sweet. Ok.

Overall OK, but a bit of a vinegar after taste. Probably wouldn't buy in volume.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark cloudy brown head, a medium beige head some light lacing. Aroma and taste is of dark lightly toasted caramel malt, yeast and some grain flavors. A medium body with light carbonation. Finish is lightly toasted caramel malt, yeast and grain. Aroma and taste seem a bit mild for the style, but still an ok drinking brew.

More bitter than I generally like my browns, kind of like a brown that wants to become a porter someday. Flavorful nonetheless. Light tan head. Rich dark color. Sweet and slightly bitter.

It was terrible. Just not my kind of beer. I hated every aspect of this beer. Very thick and foamy.

Dark brown caramel, nearly black, with off white head and lacing. Light aroma of...cinnamon donuts? Palate is light-bodied with mild nut and caramel flavors. Palate is a little watery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is quite malty with some caramel and toasty elements to it. Taste is light and smooth and slightly sweet and toasty, but not all that special. OK.
