4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The flavor mimics the positive aroma. The malt is dark in flavor, but without any burnt elements. I’m reminded of unsweetened cocoa (no milk). The bitterness is more pronounced in the swallow and lasts a while in the aftertaste, but it isn’t overbearing. The body leans to the thin side, but the carbonation is appropriate. Overall, this is an extremely well-crafted, well-balanced beer. It would be very easy to keep drinking this one all afternoon.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really dark brown with basically zero head. Aroma of roast, molasses, pine, and toffee. The taste is very slightly sweet, substantially roasty, and moderately bitter. Medium bodied, below average carbonation. Decent, but well below expectation for this brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Deep cola, moderate frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Pale roast, slight lactose, with some pasture like bitterness on the nose.   Smooth sweet and roasty hoppiness on the tongue.   Thankfully the
pasture doesn’t come across on the tongue, only pale roast and some sweet citrusy hops.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Nice balance, a sweeter example which is great with the roasted malts.   Enjoyable!

From a bomber, pours jet black with a small white head, aroma of roasty chocolate malts with a nice piney hop presence, with some citrus tang coming through. Carbonation average. Finish is well balanced, bitter but crisp, very moreish. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a nice, dark flavor and retains a hoppiness as advertised. Smooth but not too extreme, certainly flavorful. Not my favorite from BR, but I’m glad I tried it.
