3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Discount Liquors. Pours a deep and brooding brown with a quickly faltering head into a Westvleteren chalice. Nose is hershey’s syrup, dark fruity, faint cherry and a clove phenol note. Peppery. Taste is light cocoa, cloves and a hot alcohol note. Quite dry overall. The phenols are too much and kick the cocoa around. Also, the cocoa has a milk chocolate quality to it which lends a bizarre sweetness. Worth trying but not really my bag.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-big thanks to ibrew2or3 for this one! Pours deep brown chestnut hue with a nice fizzy tan head that lasted quite a while. very effervescent carbonation. nose is huge chocolate, lite nuts, lite amber grains, but chocolate mostly dominates the nose. didnt think i would like this but i do like the nose. flavors are big chocolate as well with hints of alcohol, toasted malt brains (belgian), however, for a 7% beer, it has alot of alcohol flavor, its main problem. somewhat estringent on the finish mostly from the alcohol. decent yet not great NG. Still very glad i got to try it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown beer. There is a nice aroma of cocoa, with yeast. Flavor is lightly sweet and somewhat nutty, more chocolate here, and a light character of an abbey style beer. Very smooth palate, some dried fruit, with a full malt character that almost makes me think Brown Ale. A solid beer, but far from New Glarus’ best work.

This might as well have been a bottle of melted chocolate. Completely overpowered anything else that might have been there. Not good.
