3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, shared by tmoney99. Best by 3/15/13. Very nice roasty Turkish coffee nose. Clear dark brown color. Minimal tan head. Few dots of lace Medium to lighter body. Dry texture. Lighter carbonation. Taste is a bit of a let down from the aroma. Kind of feels a little watered down. Little bitter taste, but lacking even on that. Some macro-blandness, in the flavor, even. Impressive nose, but everything else about this is a bit of a let-down for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with Jim and Mitch. Pours a clear black to brown, with some copper highlights and a huge thick tan head that deflates quickly and steadily. Big coffee on the noes, lots of roast. Somewhat thin in terms of body, coffee with cream. Tasty enough, but the lack of body kills this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing light beige head. Has a lightly sweet dark caramel malty nose with lots of fresh roasty coffee. Starts with average fullness and light malty sweetness with good coffee flavor and a touch of milk chocolate before a drier bittersweet roasted finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

22oz bottle while visiting Albany. Black pour with a nice tan head and plenty of lacing. Good aroma - coffee, chocolate, a touch of ash, milk chocolate. Better flavor, good balance of coffee and chocolate sweetness, some bready malts and caramel help out. Tasty.
