3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Dark brown, near black pour with a small brown head. Aroma of heavy roast, light cocoa, and a very light sweetness that I’d attribute to the fireweed honey. Tastes of heavy roast and has a light smokey element. There is just a little bit of bittersweet; the real sweetness coming from the honey, but its very light. The roast and smoke has a nice flavor and really stands out as the backbone of this brew. I am really liking how the smoke plays a complimentary role and it just rolls with the heavy roast instead of taking over. Very good overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is roasted malt for days, chocolate, some coffee. Not getting much of that honey. Bit of sweetness. Maybe that’s from the syrup or honey. Flavor is very roasted malt. Some sweetness, but again, I don’t get much honey or syrup in it. Still nice flavor, some chocolate, decent coffee finish. Nice, overall. Decent body, but a little effervescent.

Dark black body brown head. Aroma of ripe bananas, dry cocoa. Taste is again banana, dry roasty cocoa malt, some boozy heat. Palate could be a bit fuller. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour, tan head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is darker fruit, dried fruit, licorice, chocolate, caramel, light roast, maybe a hint of honey? Fairly full bodied, soy, chocolate and the darker fruit flavors all come out with a sweeter finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 ounce bottle. Mostly anise in the aroma with a little sweet chocolate and a little bit of a burnt rubbery/pool toy character. Slightly transparent dark mahogany body with a small, quickly dissipating light tan head. Starts really sweet, chewy, and viscous. Some roast and chocolate is present in the middle. This is warming with some ethanol late. This is just so thick and viscous.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thin tan head on a black body.
Aroma is caramel, candy, wood smoke and coffee. Nice blend.
Taste is has a nice coffee bitterness throughout with caramel and other sweets, an earthy finish.
Texture is fairly light for the style, but good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
No shortage of syrup and honey. Ends up too sweet with little bitterness or roastiness offsetting it.

Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival 2016, Denver, CO.
Black color with a small brown head.
Roasted malt, Smoke, alcohol and sweetness. Quite rich but after Destihl’s Dosvidanya this feels thin. A bit strange also.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice unique beer. Pours a beautiful deep black with a thick brown head. Smells very floral, with a bit of smokiness. Taste is smooth, with vanilla and floral notes upfront, followed by honey and smokiness, and a balanced finish. Had on tap at Bailys Taproom.
