Mahogany colored brew with a tan foam leaves lots of lacing. Spicy aroma is a mixed bag of nuts, chocolate, and pepper. Fine carbonation and medium body. Flavor is smooth and the finish is cocoa sweet.

Sample pour. Dark thin pour with a light khaki head. Nose is chocolate and hazelnut. Smooth and lightly sweet, a little caramel. Flavor is sweeter and smooth, caramel and nutty with chocolate all over. Not bad, not my favorite.

jmohno (1019) - Iowa, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Black with almost a red hue.Too dark to show.Slight head. Aroma has some sweet nutty pecans(you wouldnt know it was this uless you read it-although it has a nutty character . synthetic plastic slightly),toastiness,chocolate, caramel.very slight cinnimon. Taste is chocolate,carmel,nutty,some toast,some spice.Fairly complex but almost watery or minerally.Bottle is over 6 mo. aged so maybe this would be more intense younger.Still a nice beer. A bit sweet,but not that rich and dosent seem like this high a abv.
