look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Black in color,but some light does manage to peek through. A fingernail thin layer of khaki colored head is present and doesn't cover quite the entire top. Light notes of chocolate are all I get with the aroma. I get predominately sweet chocolate and a light,neutral hoppiness in the front of the palate. The mouth is a bit sticky and viscous. Somehow the chocolate and the hoppiness comes off a bit cloying. Sweet and slightly bitter is odd.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark brown/tan, Not much of a head and minimal lacing.

Smell - Chocolate, roasty malts, cocoa, molasses, vanilla. Some milk notes along with some caramel.

Taste - Starts out with a cocoa, some malts and lactose milk. Kind of odd milky flavor along with molasses. Some raisin and a little cherry show up. Not overly chocolate flavored, and has a bite of alcohol warmth at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Malts and lactose milk coat the tongue. Palate gets more malts, some cocoa and sugars, along with some alcohol. Aftertaste is milky and weak malts.

Overall - Boring, weak flavored and lacking chocolate. If it wasn't for the molasses this would be one bland beer. Nothing id want to drink again.
