This is a good one. It’s black as shit and had a nice brown head. It’s aroma and taste are interesting. I can’t really pick out any specific flavors, It’s it’s own flavor. It kind of tastes like a thick stout with a stout with hops placed very well in it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured back in the library, chillen... jyst now.
The beer pours black with a big tan head and a little bit of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is roasty, but it also has a bit of leafy hoppiness. It’s got some sweeter elements of licorice and toasted marshmallow. It’s got some burnt toast, certainly some alcohol, and a touch of plum like fruitiness.
The flavor is actually extraordinarily balanced. It’s got the sweeter marshmallow, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and licorice flavors... but the roastiness and bitterness along with the surprisingly light but well employed warmness from the alcohol lend some nice balance here. It’s got burnt toast, it’s got a little bit of raisin, it’s got a bit of leafy hops.
I quite enjoy this actually.

330ml bottle. Black. Short tan head. Aroma of liquorice, burnt bread, berries. Leathery, chocolatey taste. Bit of umami. Not too sweet. Balance and drinkability are good. Not the biggest fan of the flavour combo, but it’s decent stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of roasted malts and dark roasted coffee. Deep rich black in color. Taste of dark roasted malts, with coffee in the middle which is different finish off with semi sweet chocolate boozy warmth in the chest. Full super sticky thick body with unliked flat like fizziness. Great tasting brew only the 2nd brew I’ve tried but this is making me want to try more from you guys. Lovely brew.
