Poured from a 12 oz bottle

A- pours an interesting ruby/amber color with an off white head that hangs for quite a bit. Nice lacing throughout, sip after sip.

S- hints of citrus, a slight orange tone, with some hoppy notes

T- very subtle, but sweet chocolate on the front with a citrusy orange and bitter chocolate finish. Pretty impressive blend really. One of a kind.

M- a bit harsh up front with strong carbonation and Dryness from the hops that make my mouth pucker a bit. After swallowing and licking my lips I taste the slight chocolate presence with orange, but also delicious hops and biscuity malts.

O- very interesting beer. Definitely not a sessionable brew at 7.5% and with all the flavor it will do a number on your palette. Definitely worth trying!

Pours like a thin brown ale with ruby edges and a one finger cream colored head. Aroma of orange peel and citrus hops, with some other spice aroma I assume is the chocolate. Flavor is toasty malts with a bitter--almost rye like--dry finish. Drinks like a black rye ipa. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Actually not half bad, but certainly not chocolatey by any means.
