thick and syrupy, dark brown, with a nice tan foam head, smells of newly cut grass, bread and fruit, feels almost like a light barleywine, toffee, caramel, stone-fruit, velvety in the mouth, towards the back end its a bit on the bitter side, so it starts of sweet, which is actually very good, but towards the back end it becomes bitter, which could be toned down just a bit for my taste, overall drinkable.

Thick, rich, with a smoky caramel taste. Very little head.

This brew has alot of taste and flavors going on in a smooth manner. Troegs is known for brewing an interesting and smooth product and this is no exception even with a 8.2% ABV. Now be aware, this beer says on the bottle that it has hints of chocolate in it. Id disagree. Its much more than a hint. Its an overload of scent of chocolate. To my tastes and nostrels its almost like someone tossed some hersheys dark chocolate bars in a beer barrel. Now if you dont like that flavor and scent this is not for you. It took me by surprise thats for sure. However even with all the flavors going on at once. It still comes off as very smooth given its higher ABV. Would i return to it. no, not my thing, but is it bad. No it is not.

Roughly the color of dark-brewed iced tea. Short to medium tan head. Kind of a sweet almost tea-like aroma, really. Possibly some hints of chocolate and / or caramel. Initial taste very pleasant with, again, a certain slight sweetness. Not bitter... Ok, maybe some little bitter notes beneath the surface. I'd absolutely buy this again.
