3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Nutty, chocolaty, and lightly piney on the nose. The palate settles into a nice, toffee-like and slightly herbal groove. On the whole, lighter than it looks. The alcohol is used to full effect; not a degree more than is necessary to carry the beer to completion.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of sweet and nutty and chocolaty malts, some light pecans, hints of EtOH, and some dough and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Boring but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste of dark malts, nuttiness, chocolate, and a hint of booze. A little musty, and a bit weird on the tongue, not bad, but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Whole Foods in Vienna, VA.
Opaque, black-brown with a tan head and good lacing.
Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, pecans and a little molasses.
Taste of pecans, chocolate, molasses and roasted malt. The pecans and chocolate come through strongly--sort of like a pecan butter cup, if such a thing existed.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from the brewery: deep brown beer with slight reddish hues and a medium frothy chocolate milk head. Nose of brown sugar, candied nuts, and roasted grain. Flavor is rich with toasted brown bread, scorched nuts, and bitter cocoa followed by a milk chocolate sweetness that finishes mildly bitter. Good beer with a lot of flavor.
