3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing froth of beige head. Has a sweet dark caramel malty nose with some raisins and piny hops. Starts with decent fullness and fine carbonation with plenty of sweetness and mild roastiness with notes of toffee and raisins before a slightly warming bittersweet finish with some lingering dark chocolate notes. This beer definitely seems confused to me and a good example of why blending two beers that taste good in their own regard is not always a good idea.

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

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.

Pours dark and opaque with a thin ring of head. The aroma is oaky cocoa, roasted malt and black licorice. The taste is fruity malt and rich toasted malt. Barleywine and Russian imp stout are my two favorite styles and they compliment each other quite well here.

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

On tap, pours a black shade with barely any head, small amount of lacing Aromas and flavor is ultra buttery oak, toffee, hops, and some bitter grains, roasted malts, chalk, vanilla, cereal, and other smooth notes. Maybe my favorite of the lineup Duclaw brought. Makes sense since devils milk is my all time fave from them.
