The beer pours copper colored with some small floaties suspended in it. There is about an inch of off-white foamy head. The aroma is of cocoa powder and a bit of milk chocolate. The beer is smooth, creamy, cocoa powder. It is like drinking a chocolate soda, except not nearly so sweet, and with a beery, moderately bitter finish. It is also mostly dry on the finish. The 9.1%
ABV is entirely hidden in the beer,
although it does have a bit of a warming effect.
