Draft at the source. Clear chestnut color. Aroma of chocolate covered caramel. Taste is watery cocoa and caramel. chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
On tap at Natty Greenes, Greensboro NC on 13 July 2006. Chestnut brown colour. Nutty and borderline dry. Just a touch of caramel and a lick of dusty hops. Malt is more toasty than sweet caramel. Relatively firm mouthfeel. Not usually a style I’m too keen on but this was a decent enough example.

clear dark ruby red, wispy tan head, streaks of lace, creamy body, light sweet chocolate aroma, rich chocolate flavor, just enough sweetness to bring out the great chocolate,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 8/10; Overall: 13/20
Pour out of bottle is dark brownish almost black with some red slightly off white/tan head. Aroma brings notes of caramel, nuts, biscuit and toast, hints of earth and slight grass as well. Taste is a bit watery, but notes of caramel, some slight hints of biscuit, touch of vanilla and some slight dark fruit, finishing fairly sweet, but slightly dry in there. Some carb pushes it through the palate fairly well, a bit thin. Tasty for 4.3% for sure. blipp (9696) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 6, 2012
