My Bottom Line:jonno (2852) - JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Caramel and milk chocolate-like sugars are joined by a grape-y touch before leafy, earthy hops arrive.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the cloudy dark brown.
-Mouthfeel is healthy, but the flavor profile just doesn’t come together for me.
-Everything is simple and forgettable.
-I was expecting a Chocolate Stout, but this is more of a chocolate-y Brown Ale...
This chocolate beer was a bit light on the chocolate. Decent body, smooth, biscuit toffee body with a soft bitterness. OK. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 RBJG2. Brown colour, gold bubbly head. Aroma is choc, wheaty. Taste is smooth and sweet. Bit creamy, rich, roasty, slightly burnt taste. Pretty nice.
