3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle. Poured slightly cloudy medium brown with a short, tight-bubbled khaki head. The aroma picked up lots of warm, deep, sweet sugars.. honey, maple, and molasses notes led.. touches of orange peel and spruce accented.. a touch of warmth. but the boozage remained well masked by the sweets.. way over-sweetened, but I was feeling that tonight. The flavor found the same sweet sugars, but in similar proportions.. a touch smoky too.. a little grainy bitterness around.. nothing spectacular, but I’d probably drink it again. Medium-bodied, and mightily sweet on the palate.. flowed well through the mouth.. solid brew.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Half liter bottle pours a perfect mahogany with thick mocha head. The aroma offers up blueberry, concord grape jam, a bit of roast, a bit of earthiness and then some chocolate. The taste is just down right yummy and it only seems to get better the more I consume. It starts with blueberry, and concord grape like in the nose and also heads into some malt roastiness, a nice level of earthiness and then some chocolate brownie. Wow! Love it. It finishes with a thin layer of chocolate blueberry nectar sweetness and lingering earthiness and malt roastiness. Damn and only $2.59 for a half liter bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. PO 3/5. A gusher.
It pours a dark black with ruby on the edges and a foamy tan head.
The smell is basically chocolate milk with some dark fruit.
The flavor continues this flavor. I think this is a beer that would appeal to a large audience. It is mildly roasty and mostly just like a really decadent chocolate dessert or cake.
