    I eat there a lot actually. Good pizza and grinders. I worked behind there from 2005 - 2010 @ Lynch Arena driving the Zamboni and ate there almost every day. (Small world.lol)

    I'm confused. Is this chocolate beer or chocolate milk?

    1/2 lb medium rare patty, cheddar cheese, fried egg, grilled pineapple, and aioli in between two shipley's glazed donuts. Freakin awesome. What better to go with this than a sixpoint 3beans?

    It's pretty good. Lots of chocolate and a batter (flour and vanilla?) on the nose. The taste doesn't deliver as much chocolate as the nose, but it is a nice roasty brown ale. The finish is pure syrup aftertaste. I like that oatmeal raisin cookie more, but could drink this for breakfast every day if given the chance.

    (Better than fabric softener - It'll make your laundry smell better too!)

    I got the last two at a local spot. Deciding how long I should wait till the other gets cracked. Bottle says to drink within 90 days, but interested to see what a few months would do to it
