Draft to taster. Looks good; a lightly translucent dark brown with foamy beige head. Smells malty with a nice balance of chocolate and mild coffee. Tastes like it smells, but not as chocolatey, with more roast than coffee. Mouthfeel is medium light to medium-bodied. Solid beer.

Kind of an odd one. Not really getting chocolate flavors... mostly just tastes like a wheat beer with roasty malt.

Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours such a dark brown that it is almost black, with a light brown head around the edges. Some nice streaks of lace. Aroma has caramel, cocoa powder and some earth. Taste is sweet caramel, liquid chocolate and more cocoa. Yummy sweet. Medium bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes sweet, with some light bitterness. Solid effort, if a touch sweet. 13.8

Pour form a 12oz bottle. Deep dark rich brew with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, burnt grains, and, as advertised, more chocolate. Taste is generally sweet , but offset but the roasted bitter grains. Smooth sweet finish.
