3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, pours a dark brown with a thin off white head, the aroma is quite roasty with a little bit of chocolate, the flavor is much of the same. roast on the front end with a sweet finish, kind of thin overall though, not terrible.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From cask at brewery. Dark blackbrown. Heavy head quickly dissipates. Very faint nose of caramely malt. Cask gave it a thin mouthfeel but fullness of flavor: leather, breadiness. Honey adds a sweet twang on end of sip.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned. An aroma of unsweetened chocolate, tobacco, some pear, a faint touch of strawberry. A dark brown, nearly opaque, thin white head, minor lace. Tastes of gentle non-sweet chocolate, almost coffee-ish, unlit cigar, followed by an interesting subtle pear and mint. Texture is mildly creamy, minor fizz, pretty unusual, but nice. Overall, very enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Dragonmead.Small tan head that mostly diminished, fair amount of lacing, transparent, and a reddish brown hue. The nose was malty, mildly hoppy and light roasty notes. Ditto for the flavor with a slight roasty flavor.Smooth mouthfeel and medium in body.Quaffable, easy to drink and balanced.Not an overly exciting beer, just okay IMO.

had this a few months ago. poured a nice mahogany with a tan head. aroma, sweet, a nice mixture of honey and chocolate malts with bits of hops poking through . flavor, the chocolate is the first to come out, the honey is not as robust as the aroma which was a little disappointing and a nice hop finish. not to bad

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep chestnut brown color with a fading tan head. Predominantly malty, earthy, fairly sweet but not necessarily from honey. Medium bodied, some dryness. Decent but not overly exciting.

Tap. Deep brown colored with a fair off-white head. A touch of roasted malt and chocolate in aroma. Thin bodied. Confused in flavor profile. Honey shows a bit more in flavor. I was disappointed with this beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft: dark brown.black with a light brown, chocolate lookign head. Much better then anticipated due to dragonmean normally having very thin, unfullfilling dark beers. this one is an exception.
