Supposedly this is quite challenging to get unless you live in Oregon. I found it in a grocery store in Vermont. I'm guessing Shaun Hill is behind this.

Split with Goblinmunkey7

Consumed 2/18/14

Appearance: Pours deep brown, with an average-sized, light tan head - retains a wispy cap, leaves a nice spotty web of lacing

Smell: Chocolate - truly, a remarkable amount of chocolate - smells somewhere between a milk chocolate bar and chocolate bread - some roasty, toasty malts, but they are in the background , as it's all about the chocolate - an undercurrent of oak and vanilla

Taste: Like drinking a chocolate muffin - milk chocolate, and chocolate bread - nicely toasted and chocolate malts - unexpectedly bready - seriously, this tastes like a chocolate bread, or a chocolate cake - some oak and vanilla in the background

Mouthfeel: Medium body, kind of on the light side considering the amount of chocolate in the flavor, but smooth, nice finish

Overall: Definitely tastes better than licking a chocolate lab (less fur, too)

The chocolate component of this is unexpectedly good. It's delightfully chocolaty, and it doesn't drink like a dessert wine. The oak adds some nice woody notes, but this is really about the chocolate. I'm not sure if this is worth the hype, but if I ever see it again, I'm buying it.
