2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly limited release here on the east coast, I grabbed a bottle as soon as I saw it. Looks good, nice and dark. Plenty of roasted malts, but nothing too bold or intense. For lack of a better term, it’s just kinda thin I think.
I’ll give it another try in the future, but for now my review is just "meh"

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Dark amber/brown body with a thin beige head that fades. Aroma has quite mild, dark malt, gentle roast, dark chocolate and hint of coffee. Flavor is sweet, smooth, light roasted dark malt, chocolate, coffee, balanced good bitterness and warming alcohol. Fine body and good aftertaste. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a big tan head. Aroma is a bit boozy with some bitter chocolate. Flavor is very strong and bitter with a big hit of booze in the finish. Bittersweet chocolate and some hops make it pretty bitter throughout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber with a kickass label and a date stamp that I think reads 15026. Pitch black pour with a tan head. Beautiful appearance. Lots of coffee and roast on the aroma with a hint of ash tray. Very roasty flavor, coffee, and pretty bitter but not astringent. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Finishes clean and dry. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Jet black colour with late awakening, huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of coffee and liquorice, leather, oak, subtle hints of treacle, resinous and piney hoppy overtones. Taste is slightly sweet dark malty, resinous hoppy, orange and grapefruit combined with dark chocolate. Relatively light and drinkable for its 10% abv.

A good example of the style. Very strong coffee flavor with a bit of chocolate that over powers everything but the bitter hop finish. Not much sugar flavor, a touch of booziness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque black with a layer of toffee colored head. Aroma of roasted malts and some coffee. The taste really shows the balance of the coffee/chocolate with the oatmeal. Very drinkable with a deceptive abv.
