22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.
A decent sized head that drops quickly down to a ring of tan lace. Nice dark brown almost black color. Hint of chocolate graces the aroma and comes off more like a powdered cocoa or toasted cocoa nibs, a hint of fruitiness and charred grain are both in the nose as well. Smooth and a little slick, creamy and even a bit chewy in the mouth with a moderate sized body. Toasted and roasted grain mingle very well with the chocolate character which all land semi-dry. Modest hopping lets the chocolate be in the spotlight for most of the time. Pleasant finish with lingering chocolate and lightly charred grain.
A good session chocolate beer, nice to see as most are heavy with a big alcohol content. Still bold enough to through at the darkest of chocolates and even a spicy mole sauce as well.
