12oz bottle from a trade. Dark brown with a tan head. Semi-sweet roasted malts, milk chocolate, some coffee. Moderate body, high initial carbonation but settles down, bittersweet, becomes quite dry, nice malt and chocolate at the end. Worthwhile.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap from the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown with some head. Aroma is a very nice sweet choco-caramel - just lovely. Taste brings sweet toffee, chocolate and some dark fruit. Slightly bitter. Not as deep as expected. Finishes sweetly bitter and not long at all. A nice start seemed to not carry through.
