3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle gifted by Leafs93. Pours a dark brown color with caramel colored head. Aroma of black licorice, dark fruit, and caramel. Sweet caramel and licorice taste. Some chocolate notes on finish. The candi sugar makes it licorice like which I am not a fan of. But if you like licorice this is your beer.

In short: A nice fruity dark ale, kind of like an Abt-light. I liked it
How: Bottle 22oz. Exact age unknown, probably almost one year of age, bought somewhere in PA some times ago and many months later this beer still has no rating?!?!?
The look: Very dark burgundy body (near black), some particles, small beige head
In long: Nose is raisins, freshly baked fruit cake, light notes of chocolate. Taste is a nice oily fresh black cake, lots of fresh dark fruits and raisins, a bit of chocolate fudge, mild tobacco leafs presence. Fruitiness was particularly engaging and complex in this beer. Body is a bit light a so called 7% Belgian Ale. This really tasted like an ABt-Light. Black Mariah is such a politically incorrect name, the beer should be called Mariah of color, and Disney should rename their classic movie to "Snow Caucasian woman an the Seven Little People".
