Served in a liter mug. Very dark brown, with just a bit of ruby around the edges. Foamy mocha head that hisappeared quickly. Nice aroma which included a hint of chocolate, not much else. Very clean and easy to drink. Caramel and chocolate flavors work well here, however even though it is sweet, it does not become cloying. Hops seem restrained. Light to medium body with a good amount of carbonation. This is one of the better seasonals here. I am glad I got a chance to try this one.
