2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Faint hints of chocolate and coffee, but you almost have to stick your nose in the beer to get them.
Appearance: Dark mahogany with rich tan head.
Taste: Light sweetness throughout, with a bitter finish at the end.
Palate: Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation, dry finish.
Overall: Very thin and underdeveloped. Not really a good offering at all.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lasting beige head, dark cola coloured hue. Hazelnutty malts procure a dark chocolate feel that leafy hops somehow passes easily. Interesting, if mellow, developing date, anise, cigar and cola notes take form among the evolving roastiness, but everything is too subtle and there’s a bit too much tartness to my tastes..

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep dark brown pour with a thick creamy light beige head. Weak aroma of bittersweet dark chocolate. Medium/thin body with a too-balanced dark malt tone that doesn’t have any sweetness or chocolatiness. Just generic dark malt smoothness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft @ the Breckenridge brewpub: Poured opaque with a big creamy tan head. The aroma was HUGE diacetyl. I have never smelled so much of it in a beer before. I had my head turned to the person next to me when the bartender put the beer down and I smelled it. There was some sugar notes as well . The flavor had tons of butterscotch as well but without the sugar sweetness that the aroma had. There was a little roasted malt that managed to poke through.
