Tap. Pours a deep brown with a small brown film head. Aroma has coffee, chocolate, raisins. Vinious flavour, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet flavour with roasted and chocolate edge. Well-rounded, and the wheat gives the beer a wonderful feel!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours dark oily pitch black, gigantic brown head,
roasted grains, coffee, charchoal, wooden fire put out by water, grill coal aroma.
flavor is roasted and burnt wood and charcoal, roasted grains, faint licorice, flavors so strong they hide alc, but alc, can be sensed.
afraid i have to admit that this one is too roasted for me. if there was more chocolate, more alc, more something else, it could’ve been truly great. if you like roasted go for it. most roasted/burnt flavor i ever tasted in a beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Pours opaque (light tested) with an average, frothy, dark brown head, mostly lasting with very good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (dark roasted grain, toasted nut, dark chocolate), average hops (perfume, flowers), average yeast (leather, earth) with notes of prunes, licorice and smoke. Full bodied, alcoholic texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness. I was hoping for more mouth feel with this one; it seemed way to carbonated. The aroma also lacked some as I also expected more in-your-face malty character. Nonetheless, a really good offering.
