4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pitch black body and stable large tan head. Nice chocolate and dark brown bread malts, rye, even some raisin. Very rich taste for the abv, honestly impressed. Not just the first sips too, but all the way until the end. Very nice to drink, rich yet never thick or too much. Very bit surprise as I had solid expecting but even these were exceeded! (50cl bottle from Saveur BiŤre)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours almost black with slight brown clarity when held to the light. Fluffy tan head which holds well. Aroma is soft chocolate and roastiness. Very smooth but thick mouth feel. Roasted coffee forms the back bone which thins out to a creamy coffee and subtle chocolate bitterness. Nice beer and very easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL bottle purchased at Total Wine Arden Sacramento. The aroma has a fair roastiness with a bit of an underlying mineral character, too. Some anise also makes a presence. Somewhat transparent dark mahogany body with a strong, persistent light tan head present. Starts with a fair roastiness, before this becomes quite chalky in the middle with lots of mineral flavors. Becomes metallic and penny-like. Finishes with a little more chalk and roast. Not a huge fan of this.
