Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours nearly clear, medium to dark brown. Forms a good 1 1/2 finger's worth of tan head that lasts for quite awhile. Moderate visible carbonation.

S: Some pine and orange citrus hops and brown roasted maltiness. There isn't much chocolate on the nose that I can find.

T: Bitter orange and a touch of resinous hops, a somewhat biting acidity, and toasted malts with hints of light chocolate. Moderate resin bitterness in the hang.

M: Thin body and a somewhat watery mouthfeel. Average carbonation sensation and moderate alcohol presence given the high-end ABV for style.

O: This sounded like an adventurous take on a common style. But in the end, one that just didn't work. Flavorless hop bitterness too prominent, and the promised chocolate and orange were not present in an amount to warrant mention on the label. It just didn't deliver.
