3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opque black with a smallish tan head that retained well and left very nice lace. Aroma and taste are all about roasted malt. Plenty of coffee with a pleasant bittersweet chocolate presence. A wisp of leafy hops bitterness. Medium to full body, low carbonation, very nice creamy smooth mouthfeel, and a quick dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque very dark brown with a quickly dissipating pale mocha head. Chocolate up front on the nose that yields to coffee. Mouthfeel is a little thin for the style. Little to no chocolate in the flavor, but smoke and coffee in spades. Finishes pretty abruptly.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with creamy tan head that lasts, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, coffee, roast, nice earth, creamy caramel and molasses notes in there with a hint of slight dark cherry or plum. Taste is a mix of nice dark chocolate, coffee, green espresso, roast, hints of toffee, caramel, nice earthy tones, some fruity notes, finishing creamy, sweet, roasted. Nicely done, the mouthfeel on this for a 6% brew is pretty impressive.
