3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown in color with a khaki head. Starts off with some coffee and licorice notes, a bit of chocolate, and a nice earthiness. Some molasses and toffee sweetness, and a hint of fruit. Mild sweetness to the flavor with a smooth roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee character. Some hints of fruit, earthy and floral hops, lots of anise, minimal bitterness, and a light metal note on the finish.

22 oz bottle I was disappointed with this one. I very seldon give non positive reviews but... In all fairness, this bottle might have been spoiled. Pours out an inviting dark black brown with a good head. Aromas of malts coffee cocoa and roasted grains. Tastes of malts with a funny metallic finish. Simply smells and tastes like a spoiled brew.
