Draft at redlight redlight, Orlando. Surprisingly good. Head is gone in seconds. Strong roast in the aroma. Oily, with sweet roast flavors and a slight kick from the lactose. Makes ne want some Andes Mines for some reason.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: Draft at Fireworks. It pours a nice dark brown color with a small head. The nose leads with roasted malt and some milk chocolate. The flavor has that plus some flint, milk sugar, and an underlying fruitiness. Medium to full body with a lingering fruity finish. Definitely a nice brew and worth a try.

Pours dark chocolate amber with a decent tan head. The aroma has light sweet malt and coffee roast notes. The flavors of sweet and creamy coffee and dark roasted malts blend so well on a decent thicker medium body. Delicious.

On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark, with a thin head. Roasted, milky aroma. Lots of roasted malt with some very mild milky lactic notes. Became more chocolate like as it warmed. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

Black brown pour with mocha top. Smells of chocolate and brown sugar. Roasted malt flavor followed by sweet and chocolate goodness. Silky smooth on the palate and warming. It hits you after a bit; I would guess it is over 10%.
