4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Angst. Dark black with a gorgeous creamy brown head that eventually fades. Nice roasted and sweet malt, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, resiny hops, some anise, bit of plum, brown sugar, vanilla. Full body and lower carbonation, bitter with sweet undertones, some fruit, bit of alcoholic kick, becomes nice and dry with a hoppy roasted malt and a great finish. This is a delicious beer.

Bottle pour into a brandy snifter. The beer is dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has a lot of the rye character coming through. I get a big spice and chocolate character in the taste. Bigger body and medium carbonation. The rye spice is really the dominant character in this beer. Very nice.
