This is a strange beer. It is lighter than I expected. It has a musty note in the body, almost resembling a barnyard funk. The chocolate flavor is delicious without being overpowering. There's a hint of sweet on the end. My fiancé said it tasted like chlorine to her. Overall, not bad but won't buy another one.

Monchito_IPA (138) - SPAIN - JUN 6, 2014
Espuma efímera, blanca. En el aroma domina el chocolate y la malta tostada, con presencia de alcohol. En el sabor comienza dulce, caramelo, chocolate, café y final amargo y alcohólico, muy rica. Es una lástima que tenga un deje... raro, artificial.

Bottle into glass. Chocolate flavor. Rich malts. Sweet. A lot of complexity. Unfiltered look and mouth feel. Alcohol smell and taste that is unusual for a low apv for me.

TizzleJizzle (620) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2014
330 ml bottle. Poured a heavily unfiltered dark brown with yeast floating around throughout the beer matrix with a tan top. Taste of biscuit, dough, rich chocolate malts, with a warming finish. Medium carbonation, medium body.

Verbrannzer Zucker, dunkles Malz, Bitterschokolade und Kaffee in der Nase. Am Gaumen viel Malz und starker Hopfen, etwas stumpf. Guter Kaffeegeschmack mit bitterem Nachgang. Weich und sehr angenehm im Mund.
