3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Colour is ruby brown, good clarity, off white foam head, which dissipates. Nose is sweet, chocolatey, walnutty, woody, some crisp grainy bitter too. Taste is nutty, bitter, chocolatey, flat cola, sweet malt. Possibly a little too sweet. Finish is a bit weird, like liquid mahogany wood.

473ml can. 5.5% abv as per can. Dark brown pour with orange highlights. Fairly large and creamy cap with good clinging lace. Aroma is malty, a bit of toast and some mild chocolate notes. Taste has grains, some fruitiness (raisiny), some sweetness, a bit of chocolate malt. Finishes with some lingering chocolate malts and some sweetness. Medium body, standard carbonation. Actually enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Can from State Line, 11/8/12
Aroma: The nose has some roasted and burnt malts, caramel, toast, and a little raisin
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown color with a fizzy beige head and some light lace
Flavor: The taste is quite a bit more sweet then the nose would suggest, but otherwise very similar
Palate: The body is medium, though it is a touch watery, the finish is fairly lengthy and sticky
This wasn’t an amazing beer by any means, but it has some interesting characteristics to it. Overall though, it’s just too sweet and too sticky for my personal tastes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark nut brown with a slight ruby hue. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, some black liquorish, and a touch of bourboney wood smoke. Taste is medium sweet. Loads of caramel, sweet chocolate, coffee and wood. Medium bodied with a thick and somewhat sticky texture. Soft carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, great! Much better than I thought it would be, considering the brewery.
