Dark brown pour (rusty red highlights), thinner-looking body, one-finger thick head.
Smells of cocoa and malts, but nothing too special of that sort.
Tastes like the smell but for me the malts and grains are at the forefront, and i do get a chalkiness. Somewhat bitter and cocoa-like, with a finish that is drying.
Pretty well carbonated, thin body. Normally ok but for a beer with this flavor profile I'd have thought it would be better less bubbly and thicker.
Overall this was lackluster for me. What roasted chocolate flavors that are present are quite muted. That chalky presence doesn't add wellness to this brew. I just didn't enjoy this one.

Poured into a snifter. Bottleneck says 120412. What's this? Twist-off cap? Strange.

A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch tan head that doesn't retain long at all before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and light wisps of surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a thin ring behind on the glass.

S- Milk chocolate in the nose and a tiny hint of licorice.

T- More chocolate in the flavor with minimal hop bitterness. Semi-sweet with barely any booze showing.

M- The body is not very viscous which leads leads to more of a porter feel. Moist with medium-low carbonation.

O- While it's quite lacking in the mouthfeel department, it's a halfway decent beer otherwise.
