look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Put this in a create your own 6-pack and sure glad I did.

A- Pours straight to a non-transparent dark chocolate color with a nice dark khaki head that forms a thick foamy barrier

sm- chocolate, some roasted vanilla, barley

taste - very smooth and creamy right upfront. A bit of sweetness, nice bitterness on the backend. Chocolate from the smell is definitely apparent

mf - smooth and creamy, light carbonation. Great palate feel.

Overall- I could drink a few of these. Its so smooth and tasty. Probably no more than 3 though, its a good thick beer. ABV at 5.8% goes unnoticed, but makes for a better beer effect ;)
