3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, toast, cocoa, milk chocolate, dirt, almost oxidised nose and a touch of soy sauce. The taste is roasty, toast, watery, charred wood, ash, cocoa, soy sauce and peppery spice with a dry finish. Light-medium body and average carbonation. Pretty watery. Not real depth to it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at dig beer baR. Fat pruney and burnt rubber phenolic nose. Translucent brown color. Rubber bands, chocolate, and wine-soaked raisins. Thin-medium body. This is thin, watery, and way too phenolic. The bar owner at Dig is well-known for taking good care of beer lines and serving beers in good condition. But I suspect that this one is not at its peak.

Tap at Dig. Nose or roasty chocolate, umami, wine ro port, and lots of phenols-berries and rubber. Flavor is super phenoloc, tons of black berry and burnt rubber, with chocolate and lots of umami. Nice silky body. This could be good but the phenolic character makes it almost impossible to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thin creamy tan head and a oil slick black beer.
Aromas of sweet caramels and toffee, with rich roasted coffee bean and a little alcoholic fruit cake.
Looks like a stout, drinks like a porter, medium mouthfeel, plenty of rich brown sugar, rum soaked stone fruits, milk chocolate, toffee and bitter roasted coffee.
The finish is smooth, a little toasty bitterness and a lot of lactic sweetness.
