Growler. Dark brown pour with crimson edges. Tan foamy head. Dark roast and chocolate on the nose with some slight hop spice. Smooth & creamy, medium mouthfeel. Chocolate flavor is more mild than I was expecting, not much depth. Decent beer worth checking out.

draft at the brewpub - Pours very dark brown with a lingering tan head. The aroma is chocolate with some roast malt in there. The flavor is what really makes this one a chocolate bomb. It’s sweet and full of chocolate There is of course some dark roast malt character in there, but it’s more in the background. The chocolate clearly dominates. It’s medium bodied and pretty good overall.

100th Indiana Rating: On tap at Mad Anthony Elkhart and served in a shaker. This poured a dark brown with a big, lasting dark tan head. Excellent retention and thick, even rings of lace. The aroma was full of rich milk chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor was moderately sweet and heavy on the chocolate. Just enough bitterness from the roasted malt to help balance the sweetness. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had moderate carbonation. Pretty one-dimensional, but still very tasty.
