3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with an off white to tan foamy head that dissipated fairly quickly. Stringy lacing starts and slides into the beer.
The smell starts off with rich sweet milk chocolate with a light graham cracker lightening the sweetness. As it warmed, marshmallow does come out nicely. Some coffee notes do round it all out.
The taste was moderately sweet with the balance between the graham cracker maintaining a sweet to super light bitter coffee aftertaste. Thereís a sweet sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs extremely light, almost drinks like coffee itís so smooth.
Overall, I liked it for me, but that mouthfeeel, holy sticky sweetness, they probably could have beefed up the carbonation on this one and everything would have been okay.

Nice aroma, sweet grapes, some vanilla and toasty cookies. Pours bubbly black with little head that fades quickly. Taste is smooth vanilla with some roasty bitterness. A bit one note and lacking depth. Sweet with a quick finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice thick creamy tan head. Aroma is intense. Lots of brown sugar and cocoa. Chewy mouthfeel. Lots of bittersweet chocolate, with a decent bitterness on the back end. A wonderful sipping beer. Sort of brings on visions of sitting in front of a warm fire in a snowbound cabin in the Sierras.
