3.7/5 rDev -8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 16.9oz. brown bottle; "best before end" warning -- in this case May 04 -- notched on the rear label's left periphery; purchased from Trader Joe's for $1.99.
Appearance: Essentially opaque in hue; large, chocolate-colored head; a gentle cascade effect upon the pour; thick, sticky lacing; very good head retention.
Aroma: Predominantly of cocoa... and nicely so.
Taste: Lightly sweet upfront; predominant flavor characteristic is that of milk chocolate, but not overwhelmingly so; clear notes of fruit and grain throughout; ever so faint sour quality; finish is predominantly bitter and roasty and balances things out nicely; medium bodied with something of smooth and almost silky mouthfeel.
Notes: Far from the "decadently" or "sickly" sweet after-dinner beer some would make it out to be; highly drinkable and well-balanced.
Serving type: bottle
