Thanks to Henry Lapka for delivering this beer all the way from his current location in Ann Arbor Michigan! I reviewed this following a long days work, nap and reading session of Terry Foster's book, Pale Ale. My initial reaction from the label was it was that of a homebrewers production, but google said otherwise. Snifter served.
Mouthfeel: Extremely carbonated. The body is light but still conveys an element of stickiness on the lips. Carbonation bites the tongue in all areas and even spikes as it goes down.
Overall Impression: Not the best in my books. Too much was distorted by the original off flavor I got from the aroma. Certainly a would be cocoa rich and malt dominated production, but not something I see myself seeking out or buying, unless it's straight from the brewery to guarantee freshness.
