On tap at the only place in Knoxville with half off on tuesdays.
A- Pitch black, little head that could fluff up when swirled and left a litte light brown lace.
S- Lots of sweet chocolate at first. As it warmed hints of coffee and a little roast came out. Only beer I've had with a milk chocolate character.
T- Most stouts with a chocolate character have an unpleasent chalky coco powder vibe. Not so here. Lots of sweet creamy milk chocolate. I don't know how they did it. Almost an ice cream like sweetness. Not like usual dense rich malt sweetness of a high gravity stout but a smooth simple sweetness. Doesn't overwhelm or fill you up, just leaves you wanting more. Like the smell, roasty coffee taste comes out a little as it warms.
M- Full but not syrupy or cloying. Feels like silk. So smooth and inviting. Not heavy or overpowering, just satisfying.
O- really great pint of beer. The beer for the genuine chocolate lover. Not at all heavy or overpowering, just delicious and suprisingly balanced. I would only like a touch more roasted flavor because I love stouts and am acoustomed to a little more espresso. Still as the cold months set in this will be a regular on my list.
Serving type: on-tap
