3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Strong maple syrup, chocolate, and vanilla aroma. Black brown with a small tan head. Bitter cocoa, vanilla, earthy/roasty flavor... just didnít quite live up to the aroma. Rather thin watery body. It was good, but I was hoping for something a little more "decadent" than what I got.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured deep brown with not much head sticking around. The aroma picked up lots and lots of sweet chocolate and vanilla, and it didnít really need anything else. The flavor found a blend of sweet and darker chocolates paired with a lot of vanilla bean.. a touch of smoked black malt as it warmed up.. finished with heavy vanilla bean and sweeter chocolates. Medium-bodied and sweet as mentioned on the palate.. cloying at times.. not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is rich with chocolate and roasty notes. Flavor is a bit less well rounded and just kind of hits me the wrong way, unfortunately.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown/black pour, some spotty carbonation and a really nice aroma of cereal and light nutty barely noticeable coffee. Flavor is caramel/toffee light thin body and a sweet finish. Wasnít sure what to expect from this beer, but it was really nice!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown black with a off white soapy looking head that fades. Aroma is strong maple syrup and tootsie rolls with roasted malt too. Taste is watery chocolate and maple syrup along with chalky malt. Palate is rather thin and chalky. The smell of this is amazing, but that is about it. This is a good beer, but after the smell I was expecting to be blown away!

Draft. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted dark chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation.

Great creamy chocolate flavor. Well roasted taste. Medium bodied though the flavor calls for a heavier feel.
