On tap at Town Hall. Very similar to the Black snow but with a solid dark chocolate addition to the nose and body. The mouth feel was a little creamier than its base with a massive chocolate finish.

(on-tap at Town Hall) Poured a dark brown with a small cream colored head that left some lacing. Aroma isnít that strong, and it was the weakest point of this beer, but what was there were some nice scents of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and cocoa. The aroma turns far more towards chocolate as it warms. I also think I smelled a hint of roasted barley as well. The flavor of this beer is what really stands out, and is a perfect balance between the roasted coffee and the bittersweet chocolate. The chocolate really takes over in the finish, and youíre left with this really nice taste of chocolate several minutes after sipping. This was a very good beer, and I found myself craving another one a couple hours after drinking the first.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 [On-tap] Pours black with a very small light tan head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is fairly weak at first, but as expected there is a lot of chocolate and coffee. The coffee isnít overpowering as it is in many coffee beers though, instead it blends nicely with the chocolate. The taste is light bitterness up front from the coffee, although not as much as I had expected. Dark chocolate and coffee meld together even better than with the aroma, with the chocolate dominating towards the finish. This isnít a very complex beer, as is often the case with coffee beers (which I usually donít even like that much anymore), but the flavors went together so well that I had to bump the score up a bit. Basically, this beer is the liquid form of the best chocolate covered coffee beans that you have probably ever had, and is one of my personal favorite coffee beers now.

Rich chocolate and coffee aroma. Black as night. Slightly sweet from the coco, and the coffee is as smooth as ever, even more so then the regular Black Snow. Perfect balance of flavors. I tried in vain to score a growler of this, but alas, they dont do infused beers. I didnt think TH could improve on the already super awesome Black Snow, but the chololate edition put it over the top. One of the best brews i have had... ever.
