3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2015 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. The aroma is malty chocolate with notes of raisin, caramel, light biscuit, and coffee with hints of cinnamon late. As it reaches room temperature it takes on a tiramisu coffee like aroma. The appearance is a murky, nutty brown that?s dark and topped by a tan, small soap bubble head, that has a light retention and no lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The slick, syrupy texture has a light fizz and a full body with a toasted and smokey / ashy note and flavors of a chocolate chip cookie and coffee dessert. It finishes crisp and woody with an ashy, cocoa powder flavor, as well as a note of dry, smokey chocolate chips amd wafer cookies. It leaves an aftertaste of bourbon, caramel, nuts and light grapes.

12 oz bottle at jcos’ place, 10.30.15. It pours a dark brownish color with a slight orange hue. Caramel and toffee up front. Gets kinda fruity closer to the end. Almost candy-like close. Smooth and very clean with a nice mouthfeel. It’s sweeter and a little strange, but works pretty well.

Copper, hazy with a tan and tall head.
Pleasant, yeasty and complex nose.
Full body, hot palate, abundant flavor and carbonation with a rich mousse, good length.
Sweet, mildly bitter, fresh acidity.
Roast and yeast flavors accentuate a malty and peaty background. Café-au-lait, cola malty tastes follow.
