Smooth, rich, and dark with the robust flavor and creamy texture of chocolate.  This subtly sweet brew is slowly aged on a bed of cocoa nibs from Ecuador, imparting flavors of chocolate, honey, and vanilla.

A complex combination of chocolate aromas – ranging from coffee, roasted, bittersweet and dry cocoa. The chocolate comes through in the flavor as well, along with some deep caramel, a little bready malt and a faint hint of licorice in the finish. Features a medium-full body, moderate carbonation, and finishes smooth and creamy. This is a nice, dry, chocolate dessert beer, but it lacks some of the malt complexity and oomph you would expect from a bock.
