650 mL bottle into snifter

A: Finger a half head of mocha color sits on an onyx brew, head has some good retention and medium collaring. Completely opaque, appears to have medium to light carbonation. Body looks on the lighter side.

S: Very interesting unexpected nose, rich dark chocolate, coco nibs, refined sugar, truffle, chocolate syrup, and molasses. Pronounced oat aroma, very creamy (yes that’s a smell). Sweet and succulent

T: Liquid dark chocolate, rich, sweet while also bringing bitterness from baker’s chocolate - Malt character is solid, sweet and lightly roasted. Caramel notes come and go throughout, good balance and subdued hop profile. Spots of sweetness from some un-metabolized sugars. Oat and truffle elements mesh resulting in a grainy dryness. Cappuccino overtones without being too coffee forward. Chocolate blast that’s very sweet, almost overwhelming.

M: Body fits the appearance, but I think it’s too light. Carbonation is light and fine, after taste sticks around, sweet and lightly chocolaty, quite similar to a mocha cappuccino.

O: Pretty beer, love the bronze/copper head, solid retention and collaring dress the glass nicely. Very sweet, probably works best for a desert or after dinner sipper. I wish the viscosity were ramped up a bit. Very rich chocolate presence, boarder line overwhelming. Reminiscent of Southern Tier’s works. Tasty sipper.
