Had on tap served in a pint glass
Appearance – Poured a nearly pure black that let little to no light through when held up. There was a slightly off white head that was present upon serving which gave way rather quickly leaving almost no lacing.
Smell – Chocolate is heavy on the nose mixed with a slight bit of roasty coffee aroma. Some vanilla works it way in toward the end rounding out the aroma quite nicely.
Taste – Quite a bit of roasted maltiness starts the taste profile. Sweet chocolate then shows up and takes over the show though. The light vanilla that is present at the end of the smell is also present throughout the taste; its subtle but it ties together the transitions between the roasty maltiness and sweet chocolate quite well.
Mouthfeel – Fairly creamy with a moderate level of carbonation. It is very fitting for the style, but nothing all that exceptional.
Overall – When you are in the mode for something with a nice smooth sweet chocolate taste this one delivers quite well.
Serving type: on-tap
