10/26...pours pitch black, still, tiny ring of tan foam. Espresso/dark chocolate nose - no sweetness. Coffee-like taste, modest bitter, bakers chocolate. Soft finish, bitter lingers.

Nocturne Chocolate Ale is a deep, dark brown, almost black color. Pours a large, thick and creamy, coffee with cream colored head that has good retention and leaves below average lacing. The light aroma consists mostly of bitter dark chocolate and roasted malts, with a touch of milk chocolate.

Taste starts with milk chocolate, then dark chocolate and roasted malts, finishing with hearty dark bread and more bitter chocolate. Has a great roasty, dark chocolate aftertaste. Mouthfeel is average with above average carbonation, crisp finish, a bit creamy, very drinkable.
