4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve found that to my own personal tastes, very rarely do I find exceptions to what I do or don’t like. This beer has qualities that when combined I don’t usually like, but do yo its high ratings, thought I should give it a try. Dint work. Poured at a god temp with a modest, foamy, velvety, lite brown head that soon settled to very little and no lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma dark ripe fruit, old leather, molasses, roast malt, hop. Flavor’s like nose, soft tang and bitter up front with cocoa and medicine, fairly dry, and other Flavor’s in back. Body/carbonation are for most part good, but some clashes yield harsh points. Finish is like flav, medicinal, longish, n not my thang.

bottle @ALEhouse, Riga
Pours black with cocoa brown top, medium with minimal to light lasing. Aroma is pleasant, intense, well balanced mix of cocoa, coffee beans, darker malt, vanilla a bit, sweet all around. Taste is sweet, a bit sourish touch and dark malt bitter. Thick mouthfeel, medium to full body, pleasant bitter aftertaste.

Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla with the right level of betterness! Body was medium to full and carbonation was light to medum! A perfect beer!!!!

Natasha rocks really rocks! Intense roasted malts, choco awesomness with that rye touch that makes this one so special, vanilla. Very decent hops for balance.
Sweet with bittersweet long finish. Smooth and highly enjoyable. Great brew!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a black color with a large tan head. The aroma was of heavy roasted malts and ryes with some slight smokiness, coffee, and a bit of ash. The taste was of cocoa powder, dark chocolate and decently hoppy, with more bitterness than expected. There were lots of roasted malts, coffee, rye, and dark chocolate. Nice.
