3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an entirely black color, with a small, bubbly, very stable head.
Smells of leaf coated melted toffee and rock sugar with licorice. Milk chocolate and a hint of caramel add to a dried earth foundation.
Has a supersoft, very smooth, pleasantly thick mouthfeel, while ending with an intriguing dryness during the finish.
Tastes way more intense than it smells, leading off with toasted, earthen malts, while its thick mouthfeel produces tons of whipped cream. This gets amped up by melted caramel and rich layers of toffee. Those sweeter flavors blend directly into earthen, dry coffee and warming, bitter chocolate. Finishes with even more cream and a chocolate covered earth dryness, which still produces a sticky, nice caramel peak.
Great in taste, a little boring on the nose with a fantastic, thick and creamy mouthfeel, complimenting its chocolate qualities perfectly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015-04-16. Black body with a small tan head that fades. 3+ Aroma is a bit of an odd quality to it. Dry roast, and some other things that defy my deScription. Flavour is has a dry dusty malt intro and a sweet malty core. Sort of a maple like quality in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Enjoyable but a touch odd. 7/3-4/7/3/16-17 Bottle shared by Wilco.
