A- Black as coal with a dense three finger milk chocolate colored head. The head dissolves slowly leaving behind little bits of lacing stuck to the glass.
S- Very deep and rich chocolate notes, slight caramel smell.
T- Taste is roasted malt with a bitter kick in the end. I’m not getting any flavor in particular. No vanilla as the label says. The balance is good but maybe I’m missing something
M- Mouth feel is light and crisp like a lager, very thin and heavily carbonated.
O- Overall it’s a smooth beer that’s very drinkable. I’m slightly disappointed with the flavor, I expected more. I will try this one again in the future to see if there is any change. It will be interesting to see other reviews on BA. (I don’t read them before I review)
