4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color of this beer is an opaque black color with a medium tan head, and the aroma blends chocolate, caramel, and roasted malts with a hint of booze. The taste combines a heavy umami, mild sourness, and a touch of sweetness, and the palate consists of a full body, oily texture, long finish, and a flat carbonation.

dark chocolate cover cherries, raisin, molasses, honey. Blackish brown with hint of red in thinnest corners. Intense flavour, sweet, dark chocolate covered black cherries. Average/soft carb, oily, thick, full bodied. Interesting. Complex despite the overwhelming cherry/chocolate.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black with almost no head. Aroma is coffee, vanilla, chocolate, muscovado sugar, roasted hazelnuts, honey, black currant. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, coffee, black currant, honey, roasted malts, some bourbon-y notes as well. Mouthfeel is creamy yet tart at the same time, just perfect. Not bold, not assertive, not screaming out, just quietly whispering. Very good indeed!
