4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled on Jan 9, 2012. Poured into snifter. Jet black in color with a nice creamy 2 finger dark tan head with good retention and a thick layer of lacing. Espresso, dark chocolate and vanilla on the nose. Flavor is similar to the smell with a lot of espresso up front, notice a little bit the oak flavor along with some vanilla on the back of the tongue. Get some roasted malt and chocolate flavor as well along with a little bit of alcohol warming. Mouth feel is very smooth and creamy. Full bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable brew. Good balance of sweet and bitter with a well done coffee touch.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very strong coffee aroma. Almost like a cup of espresso. Roasted malt, almost has a smoked feel but it think that is coffee. Bitter dry coffee finish. Coffee dominates this one. It is good, don't get me wrong, but very espresso.

Pours this beautiful black with this tan head. The aroma brings out lovely fruity, chocolate almost close to cherry. The front taste is caramel and cherry & goes into a bitter coffee flavor. The end taste goes into a bitter, vanilla flavor. Surprisingly, it is not a heavy mouthfeel & would highly recommend it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours black with a dark brown head. It does produce some lacing. It has aromas of coffee, espresso, chocolate, and wood elements. It is quite lively from the carbonation. There are flavors of coffee, chocolate, espresso and roasted elements. The are also a bit for floral elements. The finish is bitter and the carbonation tingles on the palate.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black and much like oil with a huge densely bubbled cinammon brown head. Lots of lacing. She's a beauty. Aroma is oakwood and smoke with notes of coffee, chocolate. Taste is a powerful blend of toasted oak and deep, rich, roasted expresso. Coffee, vanilla and some warming booze. Smooth and slightly chewy mouthfeel. A beer of great depth and character. Super balance - not too sweet but just the right amount of smoky roasted bitterness. Really, really good!
