On tap at Belmont Station the other day.

The beer pours an orange amber color with pretty decent head retention and lacing. On the nose, as advertised, I get a considerable aroma of chocolate, along with what smells like a pretty decent IPA (in this case, I'm getting some nice dry citrus, light pine and some tropical fruit). The flavor profile replicates the nose, but I just don't think the chocolate flavor plays well with the IPA flavors. The underlying IPA in this beer would probably be excellent by itself, but the chocolate makes it very hard to drink. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fairly long, hoppy/bittter finish. Can't recall the abv. in this beer, but it didn't seem super high (maybe in the 7% range). An interesting beer, but I'm just not a fan.
