3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: pours dense chocolate brown, khaki dense ring that persists. Nose is pungent, chocolate nib, fig, raisin, vanilla, musty shoe leather on the nose. Herbal chocolate, roasted malts, and lots of dark fruit overtones on the finish. Boozy heat filters in there. Rich, thick palate adds to the depth of this beer. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a medium dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of black chocolate notes with some light liquor notes with some dried fruits notes as well. Taste is also a mix between some dark black chocolate notes with some dried fruits notes and some light liquor notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very nice drink though a bit too much of the dried fruits notes.
