3.95/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A- 4 Basically black in color with light showing brown at only the edges. There's a big fluffy tan 2 finger head on the pour that dissipates to a 1/4" throughout. The bubbles aren't all that uniform but there's smooth sheet-like lacing that looks nice.
S- 4 There's a dominant aroma of bittersweet chocolate. This is surely a combination of the chocolate, malts and hops used in this brew. Reminds me just a little of powdered hot chocolate mix. There's a tad bit of coffee in this scent as well.
T- 4 Like the aroma suggested, I taste chocolate and malt. A little bitterness is provided to keep it from being too sweet. Nice taste overall but not as complex as I'd hoped for. Reminiscent of chocolate milk at times.
M- 3.5 Medium in body (possibly just below) with ample carbonation, this is surprisingly light for the style. It is damn near watery, which I didn't remember about this one. I'd like a bit more creaminess. It is still smooth, however.
D- 4 This beer looks good, smells good, and tastes good... Yet there's something missing that has me lacking excitement over it. Regardless, it is solid overall. I'd be able to drink a few of these for sure because it has as light feel to go along with its good flavor.
