Pours dark brown with a medium sized, offwhite head and good lace. Smells of sweet milk chocolate and a hint of roasted malts. Tastes of sweet chocolate with some sweet, roasted malt flavors. Delicious and chocolatey but not just a chocolate beer. Good. Medium body, fizzy-ish carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Medium to dark brown, with a light tan head. Aroma strongly of cocoa and some malt. Flavor dominated by dry cocoa powder, with background flavors of roasted malt and ground coffee. The mouthfeel is light to medium. I can imagine this beer being good in the right situation, but I really wasn’t liking it. Tasted like a light stout with a bunch of dry cocoa powder mixed in.
