4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thick and dark. Nice head with moderate lacing. Smells of smoke, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is similar with the addition of heavy roasted malts and bitterness. Maybe not everyone’s style but this fit the bill for me.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, as "Vampire Slayer". Pours vcompletely black with a one-finger brown head. The aroma is of roasted malts and chocolate. The taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and sugars and a bit of coffee. Full body and soft carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. Impossibly smooth and velvety feel with a long roasted aftertaste and a slightly bitter finish. Some hops could’ve made this even better, but it already is damn good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in a tulip .... Pours dark and smokey with a tight tan head. The legs are persistent. There is chocolate in the aroma as well as toasted malt and vanilla, which odd but very nice. The flavor is a sweet chocolate caramel with a subtle bitter bite around the cheeks.
