4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with hints of ruby and a smaller beige head that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves some peated malt, licorice, dark fruit, hearty toasted bread, with deep caramel and molasses. Very sweet flavor with a fair bitterness. Full, round body, softer carb, creamy, with a long toasty bitterness on the end. No alcohol detected. A big, sweet, dessert-like beer. Nicely done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; poured a nice looking, very dark auburn color; almost ruby. Nice rich aroma of cocoa, roasted malt, peat, caramel with some sweetness. Flavor was also nice with the same components, but a more pronounced fruit presence. Nice mouthfeel. Alot of caramel and roasted/smoky elements. Quite a tasty brew

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a beer where the aroma doesnít match the taste in my opinion.
A slight aroma of malt, bread and bourbon. The taste is smoky, malty and slightly sweet with a dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a cream colored head that slowly dissipates. The aroma is sweet and bready. Flavor is sweet and then bitter, with a nice complexity - caramel, cereal grains, nuts - leading to a mild slightly sweet finish. I like how the hops are in the background on this one. But I might also like a hint of smoke.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma smells like basement aromas and toasted malts, and the appearance is a dark brown color with a medium off-white head. The taste is quite umami, mildly sour, and slightly sweet; the palate combines a thick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and the finish is long and slightly smoky.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours clean hazelnut with creamy taupe head, very nice smoky, meaty, peaty aroma, sweet and smoky, a fair amount of cola in there, finishes just a bit tacky. I wish the flavor lived up to the aroma, wanted a bigger meatier profile
