A: Dark hersey like chocolate pour produces a thin, khaki capping that was short lived, not leaving much in terms of lace or excitment.

S: Sweet cocoa and fresh chocolate, really good strength, milky chocolate with some marshmellow and cocoa powder that is fresh and finely grounded. Things conclude with a trail of fresh chocolate roast coffee lingering about.

T: Lightly dry chocolate, almost like a dry stout for flavor. Chocolate-coffee roast, lightly bitter with hints of cocoa-almond and creamer. A bit of campfire minerality ash on the finish is soft with a decent amount of roastiness.

M: Good carbonation, medium bodied, dry, lightly bitter touch on the tongue with a milky creamy substance and a light passing of coffee.

O: drinks like a dry stout, easy going down, cleanly brewed, with a dry chocolate like flavor.

3.6/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - dark mahogany body with mocha colored head

Smell - milk chocolate, chocolate syrup, roasted malt

Taste - milk chocolate, roasted malt

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, highly carbonated, slightly sweet body, good amount of bitterness at the back end, enough chocolate to keep you satisfied, even though at times it comes across as artificial

Overall - not a bad beer, something about the mouthfeel comes across as artificial, but it does live up to its namesake

Price Point - $1.50/12 oz single

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells of chocolate, caramel, and slight coffee and toffee. Tastes of chocolate, vanilla, slight coffee, but a tad watery. Beer is carbonated correctly, light bodied, drinkable but heavy enough for the winter season. Overall, a pretty good beer.
