theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Shaker cask pour at the brewpub in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The pour is deeply hazed brown, with not too much of a khaki head. The aroma is sweet malt, malted chocolate, and touch of bitter sweetness. The taste is real chocolate, semi sweet chocolate chips, along with caramel malt and a fruity yeastiness. The palate is light to medium bodied, silky cask mouth feel, naturally low carbonation, and a sweet finish. Nice enough.

On draft @ their brew-pub. Poured a dark brown, prett much opaque & sparse head. Their list says hints of chocolate & malt, and that’s exactly what I got from it. Smooth & drinkable.

On tap at brewpub. Pours like a stout - dark brown body with medium off-white tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, and candied sugar. Flavor was not as complex as I’d like, but was a solid brown. Caramel finish.
