4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours jet black, smelling strongly of coffee beans with a small tan head. "Robust" is one way of putting it, extreme taste of coffee up-front with a sweet vanilla taste after. Notes of malt, earthy grain and dark chocolate. Its very good but that comes with a powerful taste, also if you don’t like coffee I doubt you would enjoy this.

Pours almost completely black, only a bit of light comes in through the edges. Smells of a lot of chocolate with some caramel and coffee in the back. Taste is a bit sweet up front and then turns to some coffee bitterness, really good beer

Big beer. Motor oil. Punch in face aroma and taste. Moderate bitter with prominent coffee flavor. Very good. Not my favorite style but well done.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours rich and dark with a nice brown head. You find chocolate, vanilla, coffee and toast in the aroma. A big hit of chocolate with nice hints of vanilla when you take the first sip. Rich mouthfeel without being overwhelming. A nice blended finish with a trace of booziness on the end.

Bomber to glass. Pours black. Aroma is strong and delicious coffee, vanilla and smoked roasted malts. Taste starts with vanilla beans and transitions to strong coffee notes. Some slight bitterness, but strong very bold flavors. Palate is thick and well carbonated.
