3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pitch dark, brown smooth creamy head.
aroma is toffee, chocolate, faint roasted stuff, vanilla, sweetness (cocoa).
flavor is licorice, chocolate, faint toffee, spicy tinge, caramel. aftertaste is roasted stuff , tofee and chocolate.
palate is quite thick.
overall a very flavorfull beer, but a bit too much toffee-sweet and chocolate, too chocolate-dessert like. Well blended and lots of flavors to explore, but a bit too far to the sweet side to really hit it home. but it’s close...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep black with tan head, aroma is full of chocolate and vanilla. Taste up front is huge chocolate and vanilla working together, dark chocolate notes lead into bourbon and coffee, and finishes a bit roasty. Mouthfeel is unbelievably creamy. Excellent brew!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with a medium to thick rich brown head. The aroma is fantastic: vanilla, chocolate and a little soy sauce along with coffee. The flavor is roasted coffee along with some vanilla and chocolate. It is absolutely delicious. It is a perfect mixture of flavors, without being overly sweet. Very complex.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a great beer! Pours an inky black with nice lingering head. Big flavours in this one - lots of malt, lots of chocolate. I found it hard at first to pick out the vanilla, but it must be what givesit a richness and a kind of exotic, unusual sweetness. Great thick and smooth mouthfeel with a long, pleasantly bitter finish.
