3.4/5  rDev n/a
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap at The Hopyard in Pleasanton on 3/5/2012 (I'm going through older notes).

The beer is a biere de garde (not surprisingly), brewed with cocoa nibs.

A: Amber, with medium off-white head.

S: A little sweetness, and a surprising but light smoky note. Not particularly aromatic.

T: Roasty, with strong coffee and cocoa (obviously) notes, balanced by an interesting sourness. Also detecting sunflower seeds. Clean finish.

M: Very smooth, silky mouthfeel. Medium body (maybe a little on the lighter side of medium).

O: Pleasant and fairly unique.

4.2/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Served a clear red with a touch of orange and very little head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind a touch of lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some spices, chocolate, and farmhouse yeast smells.

T - Starts off with a mix of sweet rich caramel malts and grains with some farmhouse yeast spices and some chocolate. Through the middle, the yeast character gowns with a bit of funk and some more cocoa and bready malt flavors come through. The finish is a mix of earthy flavors with some spices, grains, chocolate, and yeast character.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a spicy and sweet finish.

D - Very drinkable. The chocolate added is an interesting take on the style, but works very well and the overall balance is quite nice.
