3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of raisins, roasted malts, and hints of smoke. Pours a deep black with a quickly dissipating tan head and no lacing. The taste is dark fruit, chocolate, with a roasted coffee bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I really liked the strong raisin taste combined with the coffee bitterness. Excellant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This brew is a dark brown-black with a medium thin tan head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Medium-bodied with a roasty character of malt and espresso, along with some dark chocolate and earthy hop notes. The finish is semi-sweet with a charred malt and coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Poured it from a bottle and the foam looked real nice and a great black look of the beer. I can smell some coffee, but not as much as I hoped. I think there is a distinct taste if the coffee, but I would have wanted more of the salt licorice taste.

Very dark brown appearance, sediment at the bottom of the glass., small but long-lasting head. I loved the aroma... like walking into a Starbucks. Malt, coffee, full-bodied.
