3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this at the Heartland Brewery, 8th Street New York on the 20th September 2015. Keg, nitro dispense in a pint glass. Dull black in colour with a pale creamy buff head. Roast coffee notes present in the malty aroma, intensifies as it warms up. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Dark malts give a moist maltloaf base with distinct notes of black coffee, liquorice and plain chocolate. Slight dusty hop prickle noted in the brief aftertaste. Finish is malty with dark chocolate, black coffee, ash and burnt toast full in the mouth. Very easy to drink despite the 6% ABV.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Heartland, Empire State, NYC. A dark one, almost black, with a creamy, light tan head on top. The aroma is roasted and coffee-ish, with some licorice. Rather boring and uninteresting, but not foul. There’s some sourish notes in the flavor, some berries too, but it’s mostly roasted malts. Full to medium body, smooth and with some acidity. Not much of the sweetness promised. Overall, a decent beer, but too acidic for me. 150624

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pitch black coloured beer with a thick tan coloured head. A strong aroma of roasted malt, loads of coffee and dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is a smooth and bittersweet, dry roasted coffee, nutty, then a smooth creamy chocolatey flavour in the end. The finish starts off dry and nutty then the sweet chocolate flavour comes through. Draught @ Heartland Brewery, 8th St. New York.

Dunkel, sehr stabiler Schaum. Geruch sehr röstig und Schokolade. Im Geschmack dann so gut wie keine Rezenz. Leicht bitter im Abgang, leicht pappiges Gefühl.

Not quite black. A ton of foam. Silky body just like your mom. Rich and fluffy. Toasty and some cocoa notes. Not bad. Had this on tap at Heartland Brewery in Times Square

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro tap! 3/4" beautiful solid cream head, surface is perfectly smooth. Opaque black. Gentle black licorice with slight chocolate aroma. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with light dark chocolate taste. Seems like a mismatch of flavor and density, makes for a session able stout...but not so much at 6%.
