Despite thick brown-hue, cocoa-dried moderation lacks expectant malt-saturated richness. Instead, its roasted barleymalts, chocolate subtleties, and trim hop din drift off to a nebulous mocha finish. Buy a porter instead.

Ashy-tongued maltose-scented dark lager gathers dirty grain penetration, dry raisin mandate, and flowery hop bitterness to silky pale chocolate finish. Recommended to brown ale or light porter fans, but also worthwhile for Bud/ Miller/ Coors lunkheads as effervescent upper crust alternative.…
