Taste on tap at Bailey’s Range during RBSG. Red brown color. Minimal off-white head. Interesting milk chocolate aroma. Hint of dark fruit. Moderate sweet taste. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Alright, solid chocolate ale. Interesting stuff.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at The Bridge (St Louis, MO). Pours a deeper brownish copper pour, gentle deeper orange brown glow with frothy tannish head. Decent ring and laces well enough overall. Aromas are touches of cocoa nib and gentle brown malt, toffee and toast, a faint waft of vanilla. Gentle fruity malts, a bit of brown bread and biscuits. Mellow caramel, oak and gentle earthiness. Initial is medium bodied, touches of caramel, cocoa nib and a bit of toffee. A bit of caramello, earth. A bit of earth, toffee and soil. Faint smokiness the backend has some chocolate and a bit of sweetness. A bit sweet and messy, I though this would have more nib and roast action whereas this fell into a bit of a mushy sweet Amber area with an odd earthy feel. Meh.

On tap @ The Bridge. Light brown color with a small khaki head. Tons of cocoa powder aroma. Nice milk chocolate, too. Hints of dark fruit and some vanilla creaminess. There’s a nice dark chocolate and cocoa powder flavor. Creamy vanilla and perhaps milk sugar. Good toffee malt character. Subtle fruit. Really tastes like a piece of chocolate. I guess I’m the only one that liked this one.

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the Bridge. Pours a near clear amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has earthy chocolate with some dark grains with a hint of light roast. Flavor is a bit thin with roasted malts with a slight chocolate bite.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 On tap at Bridge Tap House. Pours a brown color with white head. Cocoa, malty aromas. Tangy, chocolate, malty flavors. Kinda tangy, not my favorite Perennial.

Homer321 (2117) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Fairly clear amber. A chocolatey nose with some yeasty notes to it. A very offputting tartness up front that then fades to a chocolate powder taste. Finish is very dry, not in a good way.
Earlier Rating: 6/19/2014 Total Score: 3.4
Draft. Nose is toasty with a lot of bread crust and dark wheat bread character but very short of coffee or even chocolate really. Taste is a dry chocolate and cocao nib flavor. Slightly thin and not a very sweet chocolate, very enjoyable.

On tap @ the Bridge with Homer321, jcnielsen, and brokensail. Pours a hazy dark reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Twangy, red fruity, cinnamon nose. Slightly tart flavor which does show the chocolate but the beer just tastes fucken weird and fruity.
