4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
oh damn... This thing looks beautiful. Pitch black pour, with a huge frothy light brown head. Looks like whipped cream on top of a cup of warm chocolate.
Aroma is packed with coffee, chocolate, wood, cognac, leather, earth, dark fruits, vanilla, booze. Some perfume/soapy notes in the nose as well... (a bit strange tbh)
The taste is a little sweet upfront, with a long, slightly bitter and dry aftertaste. semi-full bodied, with a smooth texture and a rather flat carbonation. A huge thanks to Chris for giving me this at BBF 12’

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Todd. Thanks!
A: Mahogany brown, yeasty looking body with a mocha head.
N: Soy sauce, cocoa, espresso, grass, smoke, and charred wood.
T: Smokiness and grassiness. Some sweetness - I expected this one to be a bit of a malt bomb, but it wasn’t.
M: Medium-heavy body, no alcohol. Some stickiness.
O: A fine beer, but I preferred the Bourbon-vanilla Dark Lord and Narke. Not really a fair comparison; I would probably want to try this one again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really small bottle (my girlfriend actually laughed when she saw it and asked me if it was hot sauce) sent to me a while back from Botlz555, thanks man! Thick black pour with a tiny layer of chocolate mocha head. Aroma is dark fruit, oak, very boozy, and port like. Taste is sweet brown sugar up front, syrupy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, dark fruits, oak, ash, sticky sweet aftertaste, exceptionally smooth finish with absolutely no hint of the booze. Wow, this is so well rounded and smooth, absolutely love it.
