It pours a dark brown, with a thick head that's light tan in color.
The beer has a very nicely balanced flavor, which is a combination of very mild hops, cocoa, and a sugary sweetness... none of which overwhelms the others.
Beer Advocate rates it a 90/100 or "exceptional". This is pretty much my opinion as well. It's a great beer and highly recommended if you get the chance to try it.
Spy vs. Spy" cartoons, but has a slightly mangled snout and what looks like a spittoon on its head while it is sitting in an armchair.
I tried this beer at The Winking Lizard Tavern on Bethel Road, and I've seen it for sale at Weiland's Gourmet Market.
My rating: 8/10
