The beer has a dark cola brown body and sports a small tan head. Aromas include chocolate roast, subtle coffee. Perhaps a touch of vanilla in the flavor with a hint of smoke. Chocolates, mild sweetness. A touch of roast and coffee beans. Pretty easy drinking with moderate carbonation and a delicate bitterness in the finish. Pretty good.

Pours a cola like brown with very little head. Makes me a bit concerned about this bottle, as the label says it should form a large head.

The smell is mainly chocolate, maybe a bit of malt and vanilla as well.

Quite a bit of chocolate up front, there's some fruit and coffee, finishes with a bit of lingering hop bitterness.

A touch on the thin side, but the carbonation keeps it interesting and lets me know my concern about the lack of head is unfounded.

Overall a pretty nice beer. I consider it to be a dessert beer, as it reminds me a bit of chocolate cake or a brownie. It's maybe a touch heavy on the hops, but still goes down fairly easily. Glad I took a chance on this one.
