3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- a watery but dark cola brown pour with a massive espresso brown head. Mild lacing.
S- whiskey, roasted malts and light molasses start you off. Licorice, tobacco, caramel, chocolate cake, coca powder, almond paste and sour oak. Some dustiness and hop quality towards the back.
M- medium oily body with a slight burn at the end. Languid carb.
T- dirty with bitter chocolate up plus some hop bitterness that hangs around. Sour wood and dark fruits. Roasted malts permeate throughout with a slight alcohol burn as its sidekick. Middle and ending get a little richer with fudge, caramel, and toffee. Vegetal notes, hops and minerals rule the finish. Tobacco, licorice, grass and twigs.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought @ the source, drunk at home.
Pour black, with a brownish hue, with a huge frothy tan head.
Aroma of roasted coffee, oak, vanilla, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, dark fruits, leather, wood. actually a lot of oaky/woody notes, as well as some tannin-like acidity.
Taste is pretty complex, with plenty of sweetness up front, a heavy roasted bitterness, followed by slightly sour n’ fruity notes.
Medium bodied, with a semi-flat carbonation. slight heat in the throat. I want a more intimate relationship with Hel & Verdoemenis. There, I said it.
