look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Appearance: Served up a seemingly black body with a creamyish, foamed, light beige head.
Smell: Bittersweet chocolate in the nose, with a big whiff of licorice and ripe dark fruits. Chunk of Laffy Taffy. Sliver of liquor. Huh, a bit of smoke in there as well. I wasn’t expecting that. Hint of wheat, the mildest of the notes within.
Taste: Kicks off with chocolate, then a sprig of black licorice, and a jolt of plums and prune skin fruitiness. A drop of two of smoke essence. Undercurrent of light tangy wheat character. Mild bitterness. Small pop of alcohol on the fruity, tangy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: Lighter in body and carbonation than anticipated, and I’m not particularly keen on the mix of flavors present.
Serving type: on-tap

Cask at Leon's Full Service in Atlanta.
Pours a muddy dark brown color with a half-finger tan head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving light lacing.
Smells of large amounts of dark and milk chocolate with hints of wheat twang. Also present are lighter amounts of cocoa powder.
Tastes similar to how it smells, although the wheat is hardly noticeable. Dark malt flavors with very light hints of roast kick things off and are joined almost immediately by sweet chocolate. Very light earthy hops come into play midway through the sip but aren't robust enough to balance out the sweetness from the chocolate. The ending is mildly bitter.
Mouthfeel is OK. It's got a very slick thickness with moderate carbonation.
Drinkability is also OK. I didn't have a problem finishing my glass however I'm not sure about another.
Overall I wasn't a big fan of this beer - it had one of the strangest mouthfeels I can remember, heavy but slick, almost slimy. Interesting but not worth seeking out.
