JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2008
Deep brown beer with a thin white/tan head. Aroma is very chocolatey and quite rich-smelling. A bit earthy and fairly chewy. Soft and chocolatey. Bitter cocoa and a soft well-lagered cleanness on the back. Its got a more assertive hoppiness than most, but its quite nice.
