  • Pours slightly opaque but what I can see is clear. Head, on a virgorous pour, is crazy big, tan, with big bubbles. Retention is average or more with the foam thickening.

    Aroma is subdued. Chocolate, coffee, slight roasted, and even a sense of lactose sweetness, almost creamy.

    Taste up front is slightly sweet. Nutty? Middle through the end brings on the interesting parts: chocolate, coffee, and roasted notes all dance the Charleston in the mouth. Some residual dark chocolate bitterness.

    Light end of medium body with minor carbonation on this year old bottle.

    The subdued aroma keeps this beer from being over the top good. The taste in the mouth is almost stout like and there is so much taste in spite of the beer not "feeling" that big in the mouth. Nicely done. Enjoy!
