2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer and Wine - 11.2 oz bottle. Hazy light amber brown pour, sticky, off-white head. Aroma has some odd soapy accents, a touch of prunes and molasses. Soapy essence permeates the flavor as well. Some chocolate makes it way through - but it is odd and tart. Some molasses and dates in the back end. Mouthfeel is off. Not a memorable drinking experience.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is dark amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel, cocoa powder), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot), with notes of vanilla, toffee, gum, raisin.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Kinda strange, really...a somewhat clashing mix of characters, none of which are unpleasant by themselves but are not complementary (esp. the cocoa powder). Thankfully not a goopy, chocolatey mess as I feared it might be in the mouth, but still not very fulfilling. Very much a novelty beer.

in bottiglia. Colore mogano con schiuma poco persistente. Aroma di cioccolato, vaniglia, legno. Tutto di media intensità. Al palato cereale, vaniglia poi retrogusto amaro di cioccolato. Birra bilanciata e ben fatta. Godibile

Pretty bad. I rarely have to say negative about beers but this one is quite bad. There is a milk chocolatey flavour strongly present on top of a malty and crispy ale.. not good.
