3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured like an iodine oil spill, staining the glass yellow wherever it touched. Nose was loaded with roasty character, hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste was just over the top, hot with booze, and tons of huge clashing flavors, not one stuck out for me, the roasty qualities were so strong it almost bordered on a charred flavor, the chocolate was over the top dark bitter chocolate, it was just too much at once.

W aromacie nie dzieje się nic ciekawego, znów sos sojowy, nieco chmielu, jakaś czekolada... W smaku pozornie pełne, a jednak smakowo puste, dominuj sos sojowy, podwyższona kwaśność. Znów wielkie rozczarowanie.

Bottle purchased at the Hoppy imports in Greece, aged and cracked for my birthday. Black oil pour, brownish foam lowering but leaving traces. Nose: milk shake, vanilla roots, some grassy hops. Rich. Mouth: bitter licorice, burnt malt, elegant bitter grassy finish. Not bad at all, very tasty tough!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at BeerTemple. Black with brown head, one of the more darker heads I’ve seen on a beer. Lots of roasted malts up front, molasses, dried red fruits, lime pie, toffee, burnt toast, rye bread. Really strong on the roasted malts which gives a nice bitterness, but there’s a lot of sweetness too and plenty of citrusy hops to balance it out. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Nice stuff.

Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’. Pitch black with a light brown head. Sweetish-malty, roasty aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, hazelnut, mocca and some vanilla. Sweetish, roasty-malty taste of coffee, dark chocolate, mocca, hazelnut and vanilla, followed by a long, roasty-bitter, slightly warming finish. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Great!
