Bomber at Armin's. this bottle is infected for sure. Aroma is tart garbage with some chocolate toasty malt. Taste is sour tart and chocolate malt background. Might have been a pretty nice beer if not infected.12

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the pub. Dark beer with a rich, creamy head and a smooth oily mouth feel. Nose of rich, expensive chocolate and something like ice cream. There is a lot going on in this beer, with flavors of coffee with caramel syrup in it, raisin bread, chocolate covered cherries and a nice alcohol bloom. This is a great beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little unusual - sweet, earthy, bitter - three things that don’t traditionally work well together. I did, however, enjoy it because it was incredibly easy to drink for a 10% stout. Not completely convinced that it worked that well, but an interesting idea nonetheless.
