Cream chocolate aroma. Black body with a good two finger tan soap bubbled head. Roasted chocolate malt taste. Crisp and bubbly feeling. Light creamy cocoa in the finish. Has a nice balance and not over powering.

Very sweet chocolate taste. No hop presence, no bitterness, drinks like a dessert. Great transitional beer for those who dont like bitter beers.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to pint glass.

A: Pitch black, with some amber hues showing at the bottom of the glass, rocky 1 and 1/2 in. brown head lingers.
S: Smells like a mocha. Big aromas of coffee, chocolate, and caramel.
T: Charred, roasted malt play a big role in the taste. A little bit of coffee and chocolate peek through. A little sour on the finish.
M: Medium. Nice and creamy.
O: I liked this beer quite a bit. Nice and smooth, with big roasted flavors.
