3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22.03.2014, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Big light brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is very mild, almost a little neutral, dark malts, caramel, hay, grass, chocolate, coffee, hints of lactoce and chili. Taste is slightly dry and roasted, dark malts, chili, caramel, coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts, roasted grain, hay, dark sugar. Medium bitterness, nice slightly warming chili touch. Nice, but I kind of expected more from this as well.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Draught at Thai Me Up. Pours black with a nice head and impressive lace. Aroma is slightly sour, dark fresh roast, a little licorice, earth. Flavor is very similar, veering bitter with subdued sweetness, and long earthy licorice finish. Feel is very lively but with a dusty density. Really nice surprise in this one.

Nice. Really nice. Foamy pour. Good not particularly sweet spice. But the kicker here is SPICE! Wow. Really hits you at the back end. Recommended.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at RBWG Thursday night. Poured thinner density pitch black body with a smaller beige head. Aroma and flavor are overloaded with Scotch. Some burnt toast, ash and bitter bakers dark chocolate. Thinner body with soft carbonation. Another one I’m against the popular opinion on.

Draft at Appalachian Vintner for RBWG. Pours a deep brown with some amber highlights and a small ring for a head. Notes of smoke, chocolate, roasted malts, peat, and Scotch. Medium-full bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. So rich.
