Spilled half on floor, so I've got that going for me. On the carpet no less so couldn't just suck it up with a straw.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Head left plenty of lacing but was thin. Aromas of coffee, smoke, and blackened toast. Body is full with good carbonation of tiny bubbles. I’m not a fan of the coffee and its bitterness. No sweetness here to balance the ashen flavors. Bitter and black. Ok if that’s your thing.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark beer, thick head that quickly dissipates. Smells sweet, malty, banana and coffee, decaying tropical fruit. Tastes sweet, coffee, slightly burnt malt, molasses, black current. Bitter finish and far to easy to drink.
A powerful brew with no shortage of flavour. Nice mouthfeel.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Ray’s in Tosa. Has a black pour with a brown head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. And coffee. Taste is of rich espresso with sweet cream. Light chocolate presence, but all coffee. Smooth and terrific! Medium to full bodied. Finishes long and luscious with a great blend of bitter and sweet. Faint alcohol presence. Terrific brew.
