This is like a big soup of tastes and smells. Lots of licorice and toffee with slight coffee and chocolate tones. You can tell that they used 16 malts. Is hoppy without being over the top. The malts and hops really compliment each other. Would live to drink another.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark murky motor oil colour with a short lived beige head. The aroma is sweet, dark fruits, chocolate, toffee, anise, cherries. The flavour is sweet, toffee, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts, alcohol, cherries. Syrupy mouth feel. A ridiculous beer, every tasting note seems cranked to 11.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in Seattle. Dark sitting lack, long head. Huce alc and treacle, dark soy, brown sugar. Quite smooth and sweet for what it is. Glad it has settled some. Really not bad, nice even.
