Cuckoo for cacao? Good beer for coffee heads, but a bit sweet to my tastes. Nice in a flight size serving, but I didn’t crave the pint.

Deep opaque mahogany, light tan head. Roast espresso, light cocoa. Signifantly bitter, drier body. Long coffee finish with a lingering hint of vanilla, medium body, fairly effervescent. Pretty good, coffee overpowers the vanilla and cacao unfortunately.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Surly. Pours a deep caramel/brown with a finger of light tan head that coats the glass. Aroma is rich and slightly smoky with dark chocolate, caramel, woody nut shells, and espresso. Taste is balanced. Starts put with dark chocolate and vanilla, then moves to rich chocolate and coffee, then ends creamy with more espresso and vanilla on the ending. Bit of fruity yeast influence as well. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a soft carbonation. Overall very nice. Dark and rich chocolate mixed with vanilla, coffee, and a touch of fruity yeast.
