A: [4.50] Forms a nice finger of khaki head over a dark brown to black brew. I don't see much light penetration. The bottle lists the ABV (4.5%) and there is a born on notch (10/01/15).

S: [4.00] Dark chocolate and dark fruit aroma. Some marshmallow and vanilla too.

T: [3.25] Charred malts up front. Some vanilla and chalky chocolate flavor in the middle.

M: [3.25] Smooth, with a lo carbonation, but also watery. Hard to build a ton of body at 4.5%

O: [3.50] The nose on this was really promising but the flavor is pretty lacking. Partly under-flavored and partly the chalky feel/taste in the middle.

Poured into a goblet a dark chocolate hue with very little head or lacing. Definite chocolate notes in the aroma and flavor and a hint of nuttiness in the slightly dry finish. Mouth feel was somewhat light and refreshing, which made it easy to drink. Overall, a decent beer. This is a beer which would appeal to those who like flavor but not a heavy body in their beer.
