Pours a two finger tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Mellow chocolate nose and flavor is malty chocolate. Finish is bitter chocolate. Higher ABV is hidden. $6.49 for a 330ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A: Black, brown head with nice lacing, head about 2-3 cm

S: Slightly burnt chocolate or slightly sweet dark chocolate

T: initial flavor sort of a vanilla, malt ball type flavor, as it settles in the mouth, that dark chocolate comes on and it finishes with some slight bitterness and the finish is a bit dry

M: creamy, thick

O: Excellent, a little drier than anticipated
