Overall this was a pleasant beer, one that I would never turn down, but probably not one that I am going to go out of my way to find either. Poured from 22oz bottle.

The appearance was a nice dark brown, with off white head. The immediate aroma of chocolate and malt, with hints of spice. Appearance and smell were both very good.

Taste was good, with immediate cocoa and chocolate, which lingered to the detriment of other flavors. I enjoyed the immediate chocolate, and at the very end the vanilla would push through, but the cinnamon got lost amongst the overpowering chocolate. It was enjoyable, and maybe with age the cocoa would mellow a little allowing for more of the other favors to push through. The beer is a bit thin, but overall a pleasurable experience.

Poured a dark brown with a half-finger off-white head. Looks nice. Scents of chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Very appealing scent. Flavors of rich malt sweetness, cinnamon, some cocoa and slight vanilla on the finish. A nice combination of dessert flavors. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink, and not too heavy. This is a pretty good beer, nice flavor, good nose, glad I got a bottle.
