One of the relatively new, 12oz slender bottles.
Ostensibly a black pour, but some red-garnet highlights at the edges. Head decent, but retention and lace not great.
Nose is a cocoa powder extravaganza, quite extraordinary. Tastes are a bit more chocolate milk-like, but either way the chocolate element is quite pronounced. That’s a good thing for a beer labeled this way. It does seem to get sweeter on warming, and with building volume. Despite the organic label, to me, the chocolate doesn’t seem that natural.
It’s not a substantial beer, a little thin for me, and although it’s sweet it isn’t thick and cloying. So i therms of the mouthfeel it’s both good and bad. Drinkable, but doesn’t really have a huge amount of presence.
Not a beer I’m that interested in, and I probably haven’t drunk this more than a few times in 30+ years before making these notes in 2023.
