4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Let this one warm up a little, maybe 45-50 degrees, Really opens up! This is a really great fusion beer that you respect a lot once you understand the process. Sweet for the style, but really well balanced by the roasted malt. Smooth and complex, one of the really good ones!

Drinking to all my Bitches out there, you know who you are...
750ml bottle. Bottled in 2010F, first batch. Very dark, dark brown color. Pours like a Russian Stout. Dark brown head. Immediately there is an aroma of booze. Smell of alcohol & rum. Tastes of toasted malt, burnt sugars, charcoal, a touch of licorice root, mostly burnt malt flavors. This beer is a sipper for sure. (3679)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of dark roasted malts with hints of dark fruit and coffee. Pours an opaque black with a rapidly dissipating khaki head and no lacing. The taste is much like the nose - roasted malts, coffee, with notes of chocolate and hints of dark fruit. There is a nice hoppy finish and aftertaste. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Overall, an excellent beer. Will drink again.
