What a surprise, pours a BROWN color! Head is beige colored. Aroma is nutty and sweet as expected. Flavor is also nutty and a tad sweet wtih some good malt, and maybe even a touch of vanilla. Not bad, not amazing either.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thick and foamy light brown head. Minimal head retention and lacing. Aroma is alternatingly malty and nutty. Sweet roasted malt and caramel flavors. Finish is pretty weak and was not sustained throughout the glass. I found myself uninterested by the end. Still it starts out pretty well so that is worth something.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Light roasted coffee and milk chocolate on the nose. Clear dark brown no head to speak of. Mellow smooth chocolate and a bit nutty. Little bitterness, so if you are a dark chocolate fan this may be underwhelming, but as I like milk chocolate it works for me. Not quite a stout or porter, light mouth feel, but has almost the strength in flavor. A great refreshing flavorful beer without the heaviness.
