Pours thick black, almost like molasses with a fluffy espresso head.
Definite chocolate aroma backed by charcoal-like malt.
Excellent balance of chocolate/malt and slight hop bitterness which cut the sweetness perfectly.
Rich, full mouthfeel, flavor dissolves quickly after the chocolate fades.
Probably wouldn't go to the well to often with this but slowly sipping two glasses is very enjoyable.

Pours black and completely opaque. A large inch and a half mocha colored head forms and lingers with excellent retention leaving some lacing down the sides of the glass.

The aroma is nice, but more subtle than I would have assumed. Dark chocolate is definitely a dominant aroma, in addition to a touch of hops.

Taste is great. A really big burst of bitter dark chocolate dominates. A touch of that hop bitterness. Just a great beer.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, thick, and creamy. This one has a nice carbonation tingle as well.

Drinkability is fairly high. Just great big bold flavor, and low alcohol makes this one easy to consume and enjoy.

A - Dark almost opaque brown with trace ruby rays as moves around the light. Pourous two finger vanilla head that disipates slowly with a moderate lace.
S - All kinds of chocolate milk, dark, and cream with a bit of a caramel accent.
T - Dispite the scent it is all deep dark chocolate in this one with a slight hop almost piney ending.
M - Lighter then I thought it would be but not a bad thing. Carbonation was in proper balance with the style, present but not overbaring.
D - Awesome brew and with the low alcohol content it makes a welcome addition to any session brew schedule.
