3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from portableparty - thanks. Deep brown to black pour with thin tan head. Aroma is deep grainy, acidic roasted malt, coffee, chocolate pudding, caramel corn, faint dark fruit, and a moderate amount of oxidative cardboard and mild soy. Flavor is deep roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate, and faint pruny dark fruit. Fairly acidic. Lingering acidic roasted grain. Thick. A bit acidic for me. Nose is less than desirable, but ground is made up in the flavor department. Imagine this one has the guts to be a good candidate for barrel-aging.

Bottle. Dark pour with small off-white head. Aroma is chocolate with some vanilla and coffee. Taste is slightly bitter and roast. Slight alcohol after taste. I was relieved that is was medium to full body, rather than dark water.
