3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Fruity, sweetish cocoa aroma. Black colour. Small stable dark brown head. The flavour is sweet with a vinous note and a lot of coffee. Very late very powerful coffee note. Spicy finish, quite sweet, actually. Late bitterness, even seems to have a mild hop bite. Gets a bit too sweet for me after a while.

Bottle given to me by an awesome trading partner, thanks Justin. Pours a complete opaque with reddish hues on the edges, mocha head, almost oily that dies yo nothing, no lacing. Nose is sweet, sugary, vanilla, toffee. Tastes sweet, a little bitter, reminds me of chocolate milk, almost a little chalky, vanilla, coffee, a little boozy. Really fantastic.

Milky, chocolatey, with a nice roasted malt backbone. Perfect blend in this one. Makes it super crushable. Had a draft pour at 18th street in Indiana.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, cream, roasted malt, light espresso, and a hint of molasses. It’s a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head that quickly fades to a very fine ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sweet chocolate and cream. There is some light molasses in the background. The finish has light roasted malt,light espresso, and a hint of anise. It’s medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.
