Bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate, and roast. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is more cocoa. Its pretty strong. I like that. Only downside to this brew is the brown paper bag flavor. The oxidation is pretty strong.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Rustyham. Pours deep brown black with a dissipating brown head. Aroma of dried cocoa and ale esters. Medium to full bodied with semi soft carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, dark roasted malts, and mild bittering hops. What made this one really interesting is that you picked up some nutshell flavors, and that it was not overly sweet. Semi dry finish. Very well done.

22 fl oz bottle, courtesy of Plovmand. Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is cocao, coffee and dark toffee malt. Vanilla dense and dark roasted malty flavoured. Bitter and dry, rather persisting vanilla into the finish. Ends dry dark malty yet lasting vanilla.
