Pours an opaque black with a deep brown head that disappears by the time it comes up to a better temperature and leaves just a ring around the glass.

Flavour is roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, sweet dark sugars, licorice, touch of alcohol and a mild but assertive bitterness(from the roasted malts).

Bottle. Black pour, with a thin tan head. Cocoa, roasted malt, notes of coffee and dark fruit. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. Good, but nothing to make it stand out in the crowd.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark black with a nice tan head. Aroma is dark roasty malts and dark chocolate. Nice smooth creamy rich texture that hides the ABV very well. Dark roasty malts with a little bit of coffee but mostly chocolate and some dark fruit and caramel. Little bit of alcohol to, nice warming feeling. Good stuff, this really hit the spot tonight.
