served in pint glass
pours a very dark brown with a bubble tan head. Head disappears VERY fast!; like the 'head on a soda rather than a beer.
Unlike other chocolate beers I've had, the cocoa in this one is not subtle. There are some flavor components in cocoa nibs (the chocolate source for this beer) that I am not real fond of, but I think it is just the particular mix of hops, roasted malt and cocoa that doesn't work for me. The objectionable aspects of the taste appear in the finish and aftertaste. In addition, I found this to be too sweet.
O: I like chocolate and beer, and I am a fan of Sam Adams, so this beer was a great disappointment.
