2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at brewpub. Pours a murky brown with a khaki 1-2 finger head. Aroma is dominated by chocolate malts with some caramel malt aromas. Taste is predominantly chocolate with some roasted malt and mineral flavors rounding things out. Mouthfeel is what killed this beer for me. It was thin and watery, not what i would expect from a beer that smells and tastes so much like chocolate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted nutty malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew for style.

tap. Clear brown with small head. Nice mild brown, a little thin in the body, but it works well for this beer. Seems like it would be quite accessible, which is probably why they’re serving it at the local ballpark.
