$1.89 for a 12oz bottle @ Siciliano's. Brewed with "five different grains, including Chocolate Wheat, that along with cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouthfeel."
5.9% ABV, 39 IBU.

Pours out to a clear deep brown, forming a nice sized light tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Carbonation is moderate. No sediment in the bottle. Specs per the website and bottle. The aroma starts off with a blend between that fake "tootsie roll" chocolate extract and light cocoa powder (mostly the former), sitting on top of roast grains with a suggestion of black walnut. Cleanly fermented. Mouthfeel is initially prickly cola, then gives way to a strong mineral component (iron and chalk) and finishes a bit soapy in the mouthfeel. No hop nose to speak of. Medium bodied. The taste recaps the aroma. The iron and chalk is pretty strong and somewhat overwhelms the flavors going on here. As a matter of fact, I think this has the strongest iron taste I've ever had in a beer. The kind of water that makes your toilet turn orange in 2 days. Bitterness is mild and overall is slightly sweet. Fair amount of roast with associated acidity. Burnt marshmallows in the finish. More iron and chalk in the aftertaste.

Not really my cup of tea. The minerals are way overboard and combined with the chocolate extract tootsie roll twang, just doesn't sit well with me.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Dark Black. Two fingers of light tan head which slowly reduced to one over several minutes.

S: Roasty malt smell. Some cocoa smell.

M: A little too "tingly"

T: No chocolate tase at all. Tastes like a lighter stout with roasty malt flavors but not the coffee/chocolate that I was expecting

O: This is just an okay brew. I would pass over this in favor of trying some
