3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a medium head. As i drank this on my patio, I forgot that I was drinking it. It’s smooth and without any of the medicinal notes mentioned by others. Neither does it leap out with distinctive flavors, however. Just a fine beer, not moreand not less. Bottle.

Nose is chocolate, dark malt, coffee and dark fruit. Palate is as advertised, chocolate and raspberries, with spiced nuts and a whiff of smoke. Delicious.
Nice medium body; abv is 7.5 percent, but it’s mostly under wraps.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
appearance: very dark brown, short, scant, but creamy light tan head; no lacing. aroma: dark chocolate pudding, creamy vanilla, raspberry juice. taste: dry, bittersweet chocolate (cocoa powder too), with jammy, slightly tart raspberry, a hint of vanilla and molasses. finish: over surprisingly quickly; palate is a shade too light for the flavors here, but the alcohol is well hidden. notes: Not a bad beer. Wouldn’t drink a six-pack of it, but it was a fun bottle to try.
