A: pours out a dark brown with a tan head. the head faded quickly, but this might also be due to the fact that is was poured from a growler and could have lost some carbonation.

S: smells of toffee and roasted malt. i get a little bit of coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma as well. i get some fruit, like plum and date. has a nice sweet aroma without being overly sweet.

T: i get some caramel/toffee, roasted malt and there is definitely some chocolate notes. It finishes pretty dry and with a little bitterness like a dark chocolate would. there is also some alcohol in there.

M: it has a medium-thin body, with a little carbonation. it is a smooth beer.

D: it is pretty easy to drink and i could see myself ordering more than one of these.

this is a chocolate barleywine. a friend got a growler from the brewer and shared it last night with us. overall this was a good beer, and i really like the chocolate notes in the barleywine.

A full bodied slightly hoppy porter with outstanding chocolate notes. Clocking in at 6.9% it drinks mighty quick, partly due to it's dryness and nice full body with slightly assertive carbonation.

When the pub pairs it with something, listen. They take their pairings seriously and they are almost always spot on.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a can into a dimpled mug.

A - Opaque dark-brown with ruby edges, with a one and 1/2 finger head of light brown foam. Nice sheet of lacing coats the glass.

S - Rich aroma of chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, and a hint of almond.

T - Taste follows the nose almost exactly. Lots of cocoa flavors with a nice nuttiness rounding things out. Quite sweet. Hops are basically non-existant. Cocoa flavors maybe a tad bit artificial.

M - Light bodied. Low carbonation and creaminess lead to an extremely silky feel. Wished it was just a little thicker.

O - A nice, solid porter. A little gimmicky with the chocolate, but tasty enough to be forgiven.
