Can from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very dark brown with a tan foamy head. Smells like sweet mocha. Med body with creamy carb. Sweet it is. With a lot of dark burnt malt and chocolate. Touch of coffee. And it’s fairly bitter with time. Finish is pleasantly gruchy. Nice drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a dark brown color with thick tan colored foam. Pretty standard appearance, here.
S: The nose has a touch of burnt malt, with a very bready base aroma. There is a slight sweetness, which would make sense for the style.
T: The flavor is almost identical to the nose. The burnt flavor is a bit less obvious with the breadiness coming through even more and just a touch of sweetness.
M: The body is medium with a somewhat low level of carbonation, providing a smooth mouthfeel.
D: It’s easy to drink, but I do not think I’d really want to have this one again. That said, it gets bonus points for a very creative name.
