4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber shared with Alex on moving day, 2013/01/27. Big beer. Deep opaque dark brown color with a dense, rocky, creamy, dark brown head; covering remains all the way down the glass; light to medium lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel and vanilla, roast., possibly oak (?). Flavor only slightly less impressive; chocolate, coffee, floral hops, caramel. Feels thick and chewy; carbonation isn’t quite silky but definitely not fizzy. I’m struggling with whether this one truly deserves the full 4.0 score, but it’s at least close, and, overall, very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing an opaque, black/brown color, with a presentable & fairly persistent layer of brownish tan head foam, and clingy spots & streaks of lacing. The aroma was roasted and sweet, with some light grain, and notes of treacle, caramel, and chocolate. Medium bodied, with modest carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the nose, adding some presence of alcohol, moderate, earthy, and lingering bitterness, a sticky & syrupy texture, yet a bit of creaminess to smooth the mouthfeel.

@Basunen: stor doft av chockad. Smaken är ganska snäll med en liten beska och viss syrlighet.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bottle 16 months old. Aroma is chocolate and some hops. Appearance is a dark brown allowing no light to pass, with a 2 finger tan head. Taste is a smooth semi sweet chocolate with roasted malt and some dark fruits. Palate is very smooth and viscous. Overall an excellent beer much better in my opinion than it was when fresh 16 months ago.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber aged 16 months into a Hoppin Frog snifter almost black with a thick tan head. Beautiful sight.
Aroma is roasted chocolate smells very rich.
Flavor is thick sweet cocoa. Smooth. Some coffee. A bit of hops. Malty
Extremely well done blend here. Had well over a year ago and thought was too grassy. WIth some age this is quite the beauty.
