3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours jet black with a tan head that quickly fades. Aroma is heavy. Consists of lots of chocolate and toffee, and is very roasty. Taste is quite different than the aromatic impressions. Taste is quite bitter. Chocolate takes a back seat here, and instead is filled with a piney orange flavor. Quite tart actually and very different than a whole lot of other beers that Iíve tried. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Long aftertaste of orange that is bitter. You really need to try this one for the novelty that this is at the very least.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is burnt malt, hops, and dark chocolate. The taste is bitter burnt malts, orange peel hops, and a slight chocolate sweetness. The aftertaste is long and reminds me of charcoal. A little one-sided, I like bitter beers as much as the next guy but I was wishing this was a little more balanced.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
650mL bottle, pours black with a 2 finger tan head and a coffee aroma with a hint of hop resin on the nose. The roasted malts seem to dominate the flavour so ill let it warm up a little an come back. Picking up the ash and esspresso as well as a hop backround but as i said the dark malts dominate.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very semilucent dark ruby with medium brown head that lingers. Small lacing. Smoky and roasted malt aromas. Coffee. Underlying herbal hops appreciated. Moderate carbonation, full bodied, chewy palate. Medium bitterness with well balanced richness from the malts. Medium bitter finish. This is a well made beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big head. Toasted malt and earthy aroma. Nice toasted malt taste with a bright overtone, but overcarbonated. Good, but would be better if the carbonation was less (or at least smaller bubbles). Might just be my bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottled 2/12 into a Duvel tulip. Pours a dark ruby brown with a huge tan head and lots of bubbles. Decent lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, malts, leather, and grass. Taste is malty up front. Citrus flavors come in with a bit of pine and cream. It finishes with a slightly sweet and smokey flavor. Mouthfeel is thin to medium and goes down pretty easy. Not bad.
