4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle from Bottlecraft. The appearance is a oily ruby black with a perfect deep brown head. The nose oozes with hot gooey fudge chocolate browns with caramel, smoked sausauge, milk chocolate, and whoppers. The flavors enter with a lot of smoked meats but the sweet rich chocolate truffles with confection sugar and brown sugar sprinkled in there. Also some peanut butter hints. There is also some dark dried fruits and more smoked meat in the finish. The mouth is full bodied with a moderate creaminess. A long sticky finish. Great beer for sure!

Sample at a tasting. Really dark big roast, grassy, a bit peated with burnt rubber notes. Not that fruity. Rich chocolate and molasses sweetness with a good smooth grassy bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel with spicy warming alcohol. Really good.

Bottle to glass - Pours jet black with a thin, wispy cappuccino head. Aroma is dark, roasty chocolate, deep florals, notes of chocolate. A much more sweet chocolate comes out on the tongue, chocolate cake, some raisin, a sharp lactose, with a hoppy edge. Full bodied with a slightly dry and sharp finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ Riga Craft Beer Fest on tap; aromas of coffee, smoke, bitter chocolate - and apple juice in the background. Tastes very sweet, fruity and smoky, no coffee and bitter chocolate anymore but ripe honey melon wrapped in smoked ham. Very malty. Surprising brew but too sweet for me.
