Imbibed at the brewery pub in Kona. Arrived in a pint glass an opaque brown with a dark tan head. On the taste the milk chocolate flavor stands out up front with a chalky hoppiness finishes sweet and sour with a strong chocolate fade. Creamy mouthfeel. Great brew.

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, hops, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, hint of coffee, sweet malt, hops, and slight yeast. Overall, good appearance, decent blend, and good body.
