Deep dark brown color where light passes through the center of the glass. Excellent, thick nitro hear and it leaves a solid blanket of lace on the glass.

Strong powdered cocoa nose. Semisweet like hot chocolate before the hot milk is added.

Smooth, rich with a higher "carbonation". Deep semisweet cocoa flavor. Chalky and darker chocolate finish. I would put this beer in the darker Porter category than Brown Ale.
