I've been wanting to try this one for a long time and was happy to see it in the SA Winter pack this year.
Color is almost black with ruby red tones when held to the light. Full 2 finger thick head of dark tan tight bubbles that fades slowly to a wonderful lacing.
The is definitely sweet chocolate and roasted malts. REAL chocolate...not merely chocolate roasted malt. The taste yeilds an interesting combination of both sweet and bitter sweet chocolate and a mouthful of roasted sweet malts. Very light hop bitterness on the end makes a nice balance with the sweet chocolate and malt. A nice, fresh chocolate aftertaste.
This one from SA definitely didn't disappoint me. I think they found a way to create a remarkably balanced chocolate bock.
This one will remain on my 'must have' list of winter beers.
