3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 9/22/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown as a part of a Yazoo mixed 12 pack. Pours a nearly black dark brown with a thick light tan head that slowly recedes to thin, uneven lace. The nose is full of dark and creamy milk chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, and just a very light hint of spices that I associate with rye malt. The flavor is the same as the nose with the creamy milk chocolate, dark chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, rye spices, along with just a hint of vanilla. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and light vanilla finish.

This beer smells nice and toasty, some cacao. Palate is thin and head is white, though the beer is decently dark. Flavor is nice with a slight roastiness, rye slickness, but overall kind of thinbut drinkable.

bottled, thanks to cavie, poured an undistinguished muddy brown to black with nice creamy cocoa and coffee aroma, flavor is not big on rye which is fine, flavor has more of a cream and coffee roast with some toffee and nuts
