This beer is a chocolate bomb, no barrel whatsover. Thin mouthful as well. If you are looking for a very sweet chocolate imperial porter this is for you

This pours with a rather thin foam. Not a head to speak of at first pour, but a little more vigor gets a rise out of it. Quite sudsy and creamy slurping out of the narrow glass. Color is dark red-tinged brown and appears very chocolatey. Smells of cocoa and vanilla.

As advertised, this tastes like chocolate. I'm not sure that's enough to make a reputation, but it does taste exactly like bitter chocolate. The barrel flavor is deep and dank, and there is just a hint of booze and more of the oak and vanilla. As this warms up a little the malty, burnt sugar flavors and some blackened grains emerge. Still the middle part of the taste is hot with alcohol, and then it finishes with a quite bitter twang.

If you like chocolate you will like this. It's rather austere for all the candy flavors, and finishes on the dry side From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Olive Tree Market in San Diego.
