On tap at Backstage in Torrington.

A very dark brown with a dense, creamy head, this looks solid. The nose reminds me of Box of Chocolates, another sickeningly sweet beer. Sweetened milk chocolate, coffee and caramel are present. Some honey and brown sugar are also noticeable. The palate is similar. Watery, like every other beer that I've had from this brewery, there's watery caramel, sweetened milk chocolate with weak coffee and some honey. Poor.

I had this with dinner at a restaurant in New Haven on Sunday. It smelled wonderful and had nice color and head but tasted a little watery. I'm a big fan of Founder's Breakfast Stout and was hoping this would be as good, but it didn't have the full body and taste I was looking for.

As it's said in Wordpress: WYSIWYG: chocolate aroma, coffee bitterness, in a smooth and surprisingly "drinkable" brown ale. It's not going to cover your mouth like a stout, or get away from you like a lighter ale, it's a nice, balanced brown ale with the aforementioned fixings.
