3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I let this warm a bit from the fridge. It poured with large, tan, foamy, frothy, sudsy head that soon settled out and some lace. Color is a clear (with a flashlight thru the narrow part of the glass) very deep, dark red. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, malt, roast, bit of fruit. Flavor is like nose plus more sweet than bitter and only a little carbonic tang. Finish is like flavor and has good length. A very drinkable beer - session. Not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a pint bottle into a snifter. Color dark brown, looks like motor oil. Aroma is strong coffee nuttiness. Thin tan head leaves thin spotty lacing. Taste is complex, nuttiness in the front finishing with a strong coffee flavor in the finish. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall thoroughly enjoyed. I would buy it again I wish it came in more than a 4 pack!
