Lafayette, IN. Bought six pack from Meijer. Glad to try a local (Indianapolis) brew. Packaging was cool. Found this brew had too much metallic taste. Will need to try again and see if my taste buds were off.

Poured into a pint glass and got plenty of head. I agree with a previous reviewer that it has some stout-y aromas. I would definitely get this again.

Poured into a perfect pint. Bottle.

5.0 A: Medium brown color. Two and a half fingers of pillowy tan head. Retention is very, very good and glass covering lacing is left. Been a while since I've seen an appearance this good.

3.75 S: Cocoa powder is the most plentiful of smells. Dry toastiness with moderate roast. Caramel in layers with hints of molasses.

3.5 T: Taste is good too, but not as good as the nose. Toasty with cocoa powder, caramel. Basically like the nose, but less pronounced.

3.0 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess but otherwise fine.

3.5 D: Decent beer. Worth a try.
