4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. 2010 edition. Pours a totally black color with a huge foamy beige head. The aroma is massive chocolate, light roast, some milkiness, Belgian spices, nutty. The flavor is a very drinkable and somewhat mellow but tasty brew: sweet vanilla and chocolates, tons of dry nuttiness, light roast, a spicy hop bite. Very dry and damn good.

Bottle 685 thanks to texasjeep at the August 2011 tasting. Pours dark black with lots of foam and head. Nose is full of chocolate and burnt maltiness. Taste is very sharp with a tanginess that’s unexpected. Notes of chocolate, licorice, thick and rich. Not sure if this has a slight infection but it’s still solid.
