3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A big, off-white to beige head leaves lacings as the clear, brown beer finds its way from the glass to my mouth. It’s smooth and quite dry on the palate, with some residual sweetness. The dominant flavor is coffee and roasted malts, leading to a coffee-bitter finish with some fruity hints. Aroma wise is nutty, with prunes and a solid roasted, coffee-like smell. Overall, a nice one, sure living up to its name. Gonna have more of this for sure. 110204

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small offwhite head. Deep dark red body. Roasty earthy coffee grounds aroma with chocolate and faint fruity notes is incredibly vivid. Dryish roasty chocolate and coffee grounds taste with light acidic and mealy earthy vinuous notes. Light body. Soft mealy mouthfeel. Dry earthy papery burnt aftertaste with mealy fruity notes. Lovely! Vivid, full of character, and highly drinkable. Harmonic, too. (0.75l bottle.)
