3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bomber hared with Strykzone on Facebook chat. In the glass was black. But this was after a giant gusher. What a mess!!! Anyway it took a long time to manage to get a pint glass full;. The rest was lost to foam Tan head. Lots of tan head. Too much tan head. Nose of chocolate. Full body and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted malts with lots of chocolate/ Some coffee in the finish. Very good beer after dealing with the foam. Too bad this was over carbonate. My only knock on what was otherwise an excellent beer.

Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Huge gusher! Made a mess for both of us. Over carbonated! But it is a nice looking beer. Almost black with a dark multi colored tan head. Oatmeal, chocolate, and roast in the aroma. Also the flavor. Bitter dark chocolate and roast. Just a little citrus and caramel. Things smoothed out nicely mid glass and this became very tasty. The finish was dry and bitter chocolate. Too bad we lost so much beer from the over carbonation but this was good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle to pint glass. Aroma of strong chocolate. Alcohol present and sweet malt. Opaque with almost no head. Oily, inky color. Taste is oily, moderate low chocolate, alcohol warmth. Husky roast coffee characters. No real oat silkiness. Low carbonation. Finishes semi-dry. A beer that is searching too hard to find itself and is generally lacking.

Really smooth coffee-like taste. Quite sweet. Goes suprisingly well also with sweet and sour Asian dishes.
