3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Vineous, earthy roasted nose. Dark chestnut, offwhite cream. Fullbodied, roasted, caramel, dark sugar, vanilla and tobacco from the oak, cant claim I detect more nutty notes than you would expect from the dark malts. Earthy and herbal aromatic hops round it off nicely. Full on flavor, well balanced works well as a winter warmer. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours in dark color body with medium tan, creamy head. Aroma is light on alcohol upfront with coffee, dark chocolate, woody, rhum. Taste is bitter upfront, earthy, light caramel after taste, astringent in the finish of the taste, little bit too much, kills the palate. Body is medium with medium carbonation, watery texture. I like the social media aspect of it.
