Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a solid bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours nearly black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head that diminishes quickly. The bouquet is a fusion of raisins, dates, fudge and clove. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Well-balanced, but the flavor is odd. It’s a mélange of cocoa, dried plums, dates, figs and minerals. Nutty, spicy, minerally finish.
