A - Served a clear red with a touch of orange and very little head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind a touch of lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some spices, chocolate, and farmhouse yeast smells.
T - Starts off with a mix of sweet rich caramel malts and grains with some farmhouse yeast spices and some chocolate. Through the middle, the yeast character gowns with a bit of funk and some more cocoa and bready malt flavors come through. The finish is a mix of earthy flavors with some spices, grains, chocolate, and yeast character.
M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a spicy and sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. The chocolate added is an interesting take on the style, but works very well and the overall balance is quite nice.
Serving type: on-tap

Served on tap at The Hopyard in Pleasanton on 3/5/2012 (I'm going through older notes).
The beer is a biere de garde (not surprisingly), brewed with cocoa nibs.
A: Amber, with medium off-white head.
S: A little sweetness, and a surprising but light smoky note. Not particularly aromatic.
T: Roasty, with strong coffee and cocoa (obviously) notes, balanced by an interesting sourness. Also detecting sunflower seeds. Clean finish.
M: Very smooth, silky mouthfeel. Medium body (maybe a little on the lighter side of medium).
O: Pleasant and fairly unique.
