3.5/5  rDev -9.6%

Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is lots of chocolate and roasted malt. Wonderful.
The taste has moderate chocolate sweetness, off-set by a moderate bitterness that builds through the profile. Finishes with a touch of milk.
The texture is softer and medium bodied.
Enjoyable.

Well balanced, slight bitterness which I'm partial to. Perfect amount of a mocha note.

The aroma at first gives off lots of brown sugar with a prune-like fruitiness; there is also some caramel, bready malt, milk chocolate, and dark roast coffee. The head is dense and deep tan; the body is a very dark brown but garnet highlights come through against the light. The flavor includes roasted malt and dark coffee with some tart fruitiness; the bitterness is husky and resiny; there is an undertone of malt sweetness. The husky, bread crust-like finish lingers. The body is somewhat light with a sharp bite from the carbonation.

Smells great, but the flavor doesn't follow the nose very closely. It's still complex and intense with a resiny bitterness that provides an American hop character.

Pours a very dark color. Aroma is of sweet malts and cocoa. Interesting, complex taste. Bitterness up front and then back and forth with creaminess and bitterness. pretty smooth, creamy finish. Very pleasant beer. Complex, slightly strong, yet very drinkable !
