3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Inky brown/black with a cm of camel-colored head. Aroma is chocolate, fig, and light coffee. Taste is the same, and rich and sweet, with the prominent minerality of well-water from my childhood, and some autolyzed yeast components, which mingle with acrid roast notes. $10/22oz

Sampled during CBC 2013. Almost black pour with a small khaki head. Roast, dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate on the aroma. The flavor follows with roast, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruits. I dig it!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a one finger dark tan head. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, oak, toasted malts, and vanilla. Tastes of dark fruits with some light caramel and brown sugar notes upfront. Some vanilla, chocolate, roasty malts, and cocoa powder follow. Slightly bitter roasted coffee in the finish. Plenty of warming alcohol was present throughout. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. A big beer. Overly sweet and unfocused.

This beer was pretty complex. A start of coffee with a creamy sweet flavor in between and a slightly dark bitter finish

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin tan head, fair retention, sticky lace. Almost black, ruby hued ale. Nose of soy first, lil roast, chocolate and grains. Body is fully medium, lil oily with a soft carbonation. Some cherry chocolate cough medicine flavors goin on with a big ass alcohol kick to boot. This would be better than most cough medicines but it aint cough medicine, sooooo. Fuck it. Bitch is tough. Bomber from statelineliquors.
