3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Alibi Room. Pours a very dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a little salt on the background. Taste is sweet, roasted malt and some alchol notes, what is not really good as there is not much of alcohol. Burnt malt aftertaste. Would be better without alcohol in the flavour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light mocha colored head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with hints of coffee and vanilla. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light coffee and roasted grain bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted brew, with interesting blend of flavors, but a little bit thin in the body.

Lactose free caramel, wait what? Never mind the brewers deScription. This is a great beer with the salty saviry notes really set it apart from the pack.

Nice delicious smell, also beautiful thick fine head lingers. Oh man. What a taste, almost like a coffee stout with a few sugar packets. Vanilla flavor. Only issues: a little thin and maybe slightly too sweet

Bomber. Pours black with thin off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is Malt, Chocolate and a little spice. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a dark chocolate burnt toffee finish. Thinner than i expected. I think it’s good.
