3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good stuff that’d be a lot better if not so cold. Served with a smallish, tan, foamy, thick, creamy head that slowly settled and lots of sheeting lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is malt and roast. Flavor’s like nose, with good balance between bitter, sweet, and tang. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, slightly long, and very drinkable. Again there’d be a lot more interesting things here if it weren’t so cold. Still, good stuff.

pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is malt, sweet dark fruit, like raisins. Creamy mouth feel. Taste is sweet with a hint of coffee. Fairly quick finish but with both sweet and bitter linger. Seems more like a sweet stout. At any rate, pretty good. I like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Hopleaf. Pours a very dark brown colour with a small off white head. Aroma has a little coffee in it, roasted wheat malts and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet and malty throughout, though it’s a little lighter due to the wheat malt. Light to medium body, thinner on the palate, and softer carbonation. Overall a unique and enjoyable and brew.

Bottle. Poured dark brown to black with tan head. Very rich in flavor. More hazelnut than chocolate and very smooth. Pretty active in terms of carbonation and mouthfeel. Not sure if I want it to be darker or not ... it works as is.
