3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of roasted coffee, caramel, and light, floral earthiness. Black with ruby highlights and a mostly diminishing, off-white head. Dry, somewhat bitter, and somewhat savory, with hints of cocoa. Light-medium bodied with a good level of carbonation, and a clean, roasty finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aromas of coffee, roasted malts, chocolates - just woody, asshes, not much of a fruity tyouch. Same for flavour. Very 2-dimensional. Watery. Faithful to style, I suppose.

Bready malt and some unfortunate metallic funk in the aroma. Sweet, bready flavor with caramel and chocolate. A little coffee bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking and pretty good.

Bottle split with Pedro. Pours a deep brown, near black with medium beige head and lace. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt, bread. Medium body. Smooth and well balanced. Really good for a style I don’t typically care for.

Sweeter than I usually like my black beers, but overall a very decent beer. Lots of roasted character.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured black with a medium-size light tan head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is light roasted malt and a hint of coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, lightly sour fruit. Low to moderate sweetness and low bitterness. Nice but kind of boring. Medium, slightly creamy mouthfeel.
