grabbed a couple of bottles of this on a recent trek to Knoxville.

Nice dk brown coloring, with an off white head, wh8ich did not retain much.

liking the aroma here, chocolate, coffee, faintly roasted malt.

Taste is pretty good, not too harsh at all. Coffee comes through more than the chocolate.

Mouth is between medium and full.

Knew nothing about this beer or brewery when I picked it up. A good one, I'll be looking for more of their offerings when back down south

Dark brown with an auburn glow in the right light around the edges. Head is a couple fingers high at the start and recedes to a thin sheet and ring. Very light brown in head color. Aroma is creamy chocolate, something like green fresh coffee bean, vanilla, nicely malty, and a touch earthy. Taste is sweet, malty caramel and cocoa followed by a drawn out semi-bitter hoppiness, in the direction of pine, and resiny through the finish. Has a sprucy mintiness as well. Chocolate of various kinds...bittersweet, milky, dark, and cocoa-y... Pretty nice stuff. Good mouthfeel; creamy, silky soft, a liiiitle bit chewy.
