Black in color with a khaki head. Nose is slightly smokey, but there is a really nice chocolate character to it as well. Cocoa, roasted malt, and a touch of caramel. Nice sweetness to the flavor. Plenty of chocolate, some roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of caramel. Nice creaminess, too.
Draft. Dark brown beer with a tan head. Toffee and caramel aroma. Rich malt and toffee flavor with light roast. Medium bodied. Rich malt and toffee linger with caramel and light roast. Zymurgeist2 (2385) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Faint aroma of chocolate and light dark fruit. Black with brown highlights. Beautiful brown head fades too quickly. Chocolate is well pronounced on flavor with a moderate (nicely) roast backbone. Roast lingers. Assertive bitterness.
