Initially chocolate aroma. The taste is a mediocre stout with some chocolate that gets drier and bitter (not from hops). Not very drinkable, though quaffable. Black with some white head. average mouthfeel, and average beer.Not sweet is the best part, but also not that well balanced, chocolate "sells".

A- Dark brown with a small light brown head

S- Sweet chocolate and some coffee bitterness

T- Sweet chocolate again, and some roasted coffee, it really follows the nose

M- Medium bodied, good carb, smooth

D- On the sweeter side of the balance and that's not really to my taste but it's certainly not a bad brew

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark, cola-brown with a slight reddening at the edges. Tan, 1 1/2 finger head was relatively short lived but left a decent amount of lace.

S: Aromas of bakers chocolate, light roast coffee, and heavily roasted malt.

T: Semi sweet and/or bakers chocolate, burnt malt, burnt toast, and a hint of lemon. Odd.

M: Bitter, dry, and overly roasty. Would benefit from a dose of creaminess.

D: Not terrible, but feels raw and unfinished.
