The biggest problem at Rock Bottom is the lack of detail about what the hell you are drinking. Literature, etc. Bartenders usually only have a passing knowledge and the best I could get on this beer was the ABV off a chalk board and a comment from the bartender that it is a dark steam beer.

Interesting concept and it is quite good. It has a big dose of roasty cocoa on the aroma and nose..very pronounced cocoa/chocolate impressions...mild fruity notes (apples/pears)

Kind of a California Common brown ale hybrid....body is medium to light side of medium...pretty creamy texture...

Finishes fairly dry and crisp, with a lingering hop bitterness...

Interesting and fun to drink....I'm having a ball with this one...
