3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Mahogany pour with ruby highlights and a tan head. Nose is overroasted coffee, ashy roast, and a bit of milkiness. Still smells pretty good. Taste has coffee, but lots of ashtray. Tons of ashy roast overpower the coffee, vanilla, and milky sugary notes. Plastic notes too, before it warms up a bit. Real thin with some biting carb. I get why this is high rated, but not my cup of tea.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours a black opaque color with no head. Smells very rich coffee note, with a tad bit of chocolate and a tiny bit of booziness. Not much to taste right up front besides the slight carbonation, middle is rich in the coffee, and the end you can taste some slight bitter chocolate. No taste of booze. Body is medium. Excellent beer, must try!

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A beer club beer. Aroma was quite wonderful--chocolate and a lot of coffee. The flavor is OK. A lot of coffee flavor, almost crunchy like coffee grounds. Body gets a little syrupy and unbalanced, but a decent effort on this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep black body with a frothy tan head that had great retention and decent lace. A nice blend of malts on the nose. Roasted and cocoa malts seemed to be the main players but there was a nice smokey quality and decent coffee notes. Flavor had a nice sharp bitterness to it coffee and roasted malts complemented each other flavors off semi-sweet chocolate and mild smoke rounded out the flavor. Wickedly dry in the finish. Nice mouth feel.
