4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid black with a thin, brown, somewhat lasting with a small ring, non lacy head. Smells of chocolate malt, raisins, liquorish, and coffee roast. Rich deep and delicious. Full creamy lush slinky body. Sweet chocolate taste with malt and liquorish right away with a bitter, dark chocolate malty and slightly ashy finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours almost black with dark cola tones, creamy tan top diminishing fast in sustainable foam layer, nice big spoty lacing. On nose 1/3 chocolate, 2/3 mild mix between coffee, roast, burned caramel, sweet malty-creamy, bit sharp and pungent also. Taste is pleasantly sweetish mix of roast and hopping bitter, intense flavour. Palate - a bit spicy mouthfeel, close to full bodied, silky-creamy thick texture, soft carbonation, long sweet-bitter medium dry finish. Very nice RIS, maybe can be less sweet and less sharp on tongue - but then it would be perfect :) So just enjoyed a lot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice nearly black color with a fluffy dark tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, lightly burnt, fresh chocolate malt, light coffee, some anise and pipe tobacco. The flavor has some light fruits, roasted malts, chocolate malt, with medium sweetness, some earthy notes,mild sweetness in the finish. Decent, but there are others I would drink first.
