3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pitch black beer with an incredibly strong light brown head. The aroma is fairly strongly roasted, and the flavour extremely bitter and espresso coffee roasted. What a good strongly roasted beer is all I can say.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour. Big tan head that is slow to fall and leaves tons of lacing. Big aroma of powdered chocolate and oranges, hops and malt. Taste is mirroring the aromas. Very tasty. Slightly bitter, but sweet at the same time.

bottle, awesome rocky stable brown head, black, coffee, roasty, with hoppy hinds, very dry bitterness, medium sweetness, full body, thick feel, soft carbonation, on of the richest beers I ve had for last year, maybe lack of drinkability, cant drink four of these a night but thats not a mission of this brilliant beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Deep brown/black pour, very thick ice-cream sundae style beige head. Serious head retention, actually gets in the way a bit! Must be all the hop oils. Big rich nose, some light hot chocolate powder, soft chocolate malts, light spicy hops. Sweet dark chocolatey coffee roast up front, and then a huge whack of rich, resinous hops. Looooong resinous bitter finish. A bit harsh at first, but I’m getting used to it, after a while it really balances out rather well. Not bad at all.
