Pours a deep brownish black on tap with thin off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of chocolate and sot taste is more soy, but still a touch of chocolatey lactose. Clean and dry, a little thin. Meh.

perfect example of the style...this makes me want to sit and drink all day long...and due to the light ABV content that is very much a possible reality!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
tap at Black Acre brewpub last fall - Nitro tap. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. It has a mild roast malt aroma. The dark roast malt flavor is on the watery side. It’s medium bodied and an okay beer, but far less than impressive. Victory can do better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It is always daunting to take a look at the board at New Albanian and make a decision. Since I had to keep driving I chose to stay away from the higher gravity beers in favor of something lightweight. This was the perfect thing - full of flavor but not a punch you in the face stout.
Aroma / Appearance - The deep base shows hints of carbonation amid the black liquid. A mocha head is gentle as it traps the smell of iced coffee, hazel, almonds, and spring weather.
Flavor / Palate - Chilled coffee is almost immediate on the tongue. A few seconds later comes creamy milk. It fades fast but is very refreshing for a less than 4% ABV. It didn’t take long to finish the pint.
