Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: dark brown with one finger tan head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin layer of small bubbles, lightly carbonated with a moderate amount of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: chocolate, coffee, smoky, roasted malt.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, chocolate and coffee with a lingering hop bitterness.

PALATE: thick and full bodied with light to medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a fine beer for the style, this style is just not appealing to me personally. I've had some beers brewed with chocolate and that worked but the coffee taste and roasted malt taste does not work for me.
