3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Marble Taproom in Santa Fe. Pours a deep, mostly opaque brown with no head and amber highlights at the bottom. Aroma of rich chocolate, nuts, fudge, brown sugar, and earth. Like a big nutty brownie. Flavor of chocolate, nuts, dark fruits, a woody note, and a lot of booze. Medium-bodied with low carbonation and a bitterly boozy mouthfeel. Not bad but could stand more body.

Draft @ brewery abq, is totally opaque black brown with lovely dark brown cap. Aroma and flavors are marvelously chocolatey. There is slight roast and slight booze. Smooooth. Lots of dark chocolate on palate and the dryness of cocoa. But the body has all the silken creaminess of meaty milk chocolate melting in the mouth. Wonderful and highly drinkable.
