Pours black with a tan head that disappears fairly quickly. Smoky, espresso and chocolate aromas with a little bit of fruit in there. Mostly a bitter, astringent taste with a hint of chocolate. Bit thin and the carbonation is a bit harsh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours an opaque black with a light brown head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has choco/caramel, some coffee, oatmeal and molasses, with a faint dark fruit presence. Taste is of bakers chocolate, meat smoke, some roast and some caramel. More bitter than sweet. A bit thin. Boulder continue along their run of "meh" brews. Through some depth of flavor in there!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Dark brown, tan head. Smells of chocolate, smoke. Tastes of apples and burnt, not in a good way. Once you take a sip the only flavor that lingers in your mouth is the burnt one. It’s really not very enjoyable. Not well balanced, not good.
