3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, coffee, slight, roast, slight cocoa powder and hints of sweet molasses as well. No real extra chocolate to speak of, taste was similar, some sweet caramel, toffee, hints of vanilla, touch of dark chocolate, coffee and roast, some earth and grass finish fairly bitter. Tasty, but not as advertised.
