Aroma of toasted chocolate malts, and some hop. Color of Guiness with a decent dark tan head. Starts with a bit of tar and chocolate. Coffee arrives, and finally some toasted malt like the old, genuine Guiness. Very substantial mouthfeel. A silky tribute to a smooth dude.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malziger Antrunk, vorerst noch überschaubar. Im Mittelteil kräftiger, nur minimal röstig, vollmundig, etwas schokoladig. Süßlich, schokoladig-sanft, ausgewogen, etwas scharf alkoholisch. Die Malzigkeit setzt sich weiter fort und bleibt auf angenehmem Level, im Abgang brotig. /11/11/11/5/11

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Excellent retention. The nose is chocolatey, woodsy and lightly smokey. Well-balanced flavor is lightly sweet and chocolatey up front. Tangy, burnt and lightly bitter with a pinch of salt on the backside. Medium to full-bodied and silky with lively carbonation. Lengthy, lightly bitter, chocolatey finish. Nice brew from a brewery specializing in less-than-brilliant crossover beers... a diamond in the rough this one.
