4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014
Pours black with a beautiful tan head of medium lifetime. A dark amber hue shines through when held against the light. The nose is brimming with notes of dark cane sugar, caramel, nuts, and butteriness. Surprisingly, the roastiness of this beer doesn’t come off as strong until it makes its appearance on the mid-palate following the not-too-sweet maltose front. It then stays, in form of a gentle coffee note, well into the dry finish. Medium carbonation and a full body combined with a slightly astringent tannic quality make the mouthfeel pleasant. A refined brew with a big yet down-to-earth flavor.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Completely black, can’t even see red hue when light is behind the glass. Small to medium sized off-white head. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee aroma. A bit smoked. Some sweetness, some bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, kind of creamy. Well balanced.
