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..

2.5 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.

Pours a deep black with a nice, olive-green head. Nose has hints of winey chocolate powder. Flavor follows suit. Average mouthfeel. Not terrible but not very good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep brown-black with possibly the best head ive ever seen on a beer; thick off-white mousse-like head that lasts forever. Taste is a bit odd; a bit lactic, approaching tart with slight stout roast character...not overly pleasant.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On nitro. Probably for the best, as the flavor is pretty bland and mild, like American Guinness. Not much going on here.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft at the brewpub. A pitch black beer with a faint brown shine under a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of roasted malt, but also light notes of butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and butter, and the body is thin. In my opinion they shouldn’t have sold this specimen.
