Taste is nutty, chocolate, rotten fruit, metallic, cocoa nibs. I homebrewed with cocoa nibs in secondary before and it gave me an off flavor that I sort of notice in this one.

Tap in Arlington. Clear dark orange color. Mine has zero head but Fratto’s has a small beige ring. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, sweet grain and hot cocoa. Taste is light on the dark chocolate with bitter overtones. Finish is slightly dry but not overbearing. Decent but is lacking the rich leafy maltedness that comes from a solid doppel.

On tap in Arlington. Brownish pour with a tiny off white head. Aroma is light chocolate, some malts, not much going on. Taste is chocolate, old vegetables, a little bitter, and alcohol. Thin.
