12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a nonic pint glass

It is dark brown in color with ruby and amber highlights. It is capped with an inch of tan head that leaves decent lacing.

I smell cocoa with hints of chocolate.

The taste is unsweetened cocoa. It has a bitter finish. I get a little dark chocolate.

Medium to full

It is a decent easy drinking brown ale.
