3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours completely black and opaque with a light brown head. Vinous aroma of raisins and burned malts. Extremely full-bodied with tons of roasted, lightly burned malt and notes of dried fruits. Distinct alcohol and a bitter, burned finish. A gigantic beer - but hard to finish. Simply too rich. 160806 and 070907

Opaque black stout. Smooth semi dry palate. Rich dark malt. Traces of smoke and cherry. Has a bitterish finish which jars a bit with the smoothness of the start.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with dark brown highlights. Slightly earthy, deeply roasty aroma with some alcohol notes. Bitter chocolate flavours, chewy fruitcake and light roast. Oily body. Thick. Heavy, dense but a bit tough to choke back and the flavours a little simplistic, clunky.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 This one was labeled "Reel Ale". I think it was. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and some hints of dark fruit. So dark you canít see through it, but with halogen behind it there are some ruby tints along the edges. The tan head didnít last long. Started with a hint of chocolate, followed by such dark toasted malt flavor that tar comes to mind. Molasses comes along. The near burnt malt covers the tongue. Itís almost smoky. Thereís hop too, but itís hard to distinguish from the toasted flavors. The finish goes on forever, and the hop finally arrives to provide some balance. Marvelous stuff.

Black with a lasting light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, dried fruits and a little burned malt. Dry, roasted malt flavour, a little charcoal character and a little fruitiness.
