Poured from bottle into tulip: pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma has hints of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt but nothing strong. Flavor is more of the same, no aggressive flavors, but decent. Slightly metallic flavor, very thin, medium bodied. Ok beer

Bottle to glass, deep dark brown with a medium thick milk chocolate head. Nose is mild coffee and chocolate. Taste is dark roasted malt, faint coffee and dark chocolate. The oat is a nice way to silken up the body, but is still a bit watery.

Pours a deep blackish brown with a brownish head. Aromas of chocolate. The taste is sweet but nicely balanced for the style. Extremely smooth texture. One of the best at the Millvale beer Fest.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 010213 stamp on the neck so it has a little bit of age on it.
Pours a deep black body with two fingers of light khaki foam which fades away quickly leaving behind a thin and frail cap. Decent lacing with poor retention. Aroma is strong on the milk chocolate with lighter notes of coffee, roast and some grainy oats. Taste is similar with a predominately milk chocolate flavor with light roasty malts and a slight metallic aftertaste. Mouth feel is on the thinner side of things leading the beer to be somewhat lacking. Really needs more body to support the chocolate. Overall, a bit of a thin example of the style but still rather tasty and enjoyable. Not bad at all.

Prett nice. Has a nice creamy body, maybe a little bit of chocolate. Has a smooth aftertaste of a bit of coffee. And it’s organic!
