3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind no visible carbonation, dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was of roasted malt and dark chocolate. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium mild roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt chocolate and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Pours a very dark brown with a 1 finger dark tan head. Smell is of dark chocolate, roasted malts, molasses, slight coffee, and some roasted nuttiness. Taste is sweet big chocolate, toasty malts, and ..... figs/raisins. Mouth feel is fairly thick, creamy, and a little oily. This is a very good beer.

Aroma of dark roasted malts, milk chocolate, with hints of coffee and dark fruit. Pours a dark brown with no head or lacing. The taste is sweet milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruit, with bread/grain and a satisfying bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Oveall, well done - I wish that it had a fuller body to accompany the wonderful robust full taste.
