4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Inky black pour with a thin fading tan head. Rich aroma of black roasted malt, deep fudge, booze, caramel, and chocolate roast. MmmMmm. Rich boozy and roasty black malt flavor that slowly calms into chocolate, bittersweet cocoa, caramel, coffee, fudge, and finishes boozy and semisweet with just a little bit of acridity tasting of black malt tones.
