3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark brown coloured beer with a nice white long lasting head. There is little aroma except an underlying musty roastiness. The taste is roasty, toasty and smoky and is enjoyable. Not a patch on Avenitus though.

Pours a very dark red/brown with a tall tan head. Very sweet malty aroma with caramel and toffee. Taste starts very sweet with a nice malty smoothness, lots of caramel taste in the malt with a nice spice near the end. Cheap brew for 7.3 percent.

500 mL bottle: dark plum, alcohol/toffish aroma. Thin palate, but a decent malt bill. I was expecting far more complexity, but the slight roasted flavours and strong alcohol were at least interesting.

A decent, frothy, Mocha colored head forms over this murky brown beer when it is poured. The aroma is malty caramel with some chocolate. Sweet malt flavor with a bit of alcohol. Nice spicy wheat bite in the finish.

Bottle. Beautiful purple/brown body with a frothy beige two finger head. Flavor notes are cherry, chocolate, and malt. Mouthfeel is very full and solid. Finishes sweet. Very nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a deep, murky brown with an off white head that looked like it had settled in for the night (it did last throughout the beer). Some lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel with some alcohol. Flavour is strongly malty and caramel. You can hardly tell it’s 7.3%, as the alcohol is barely noticable in the taste. Very smooth with some carbonation, great mouthfeel. Short aftertaste. Very drinkable, easy to have a beer accident, I like this alot.
