3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a deep reddish brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of mocha. Medium body, the flavour as the aroma, a bit of ash and a sour hint. Suspect the beer lines weren’t properly cleaned after the sour beers in Beer Temple the previous week.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ GABF. Just about black in color with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, herbal hops, coffee, and chocolate. A bit woody. Sweet caramel, too. Flavor is sweet caramel and milk chocolate. A bit of bitter roasted malt and coffee. Palate has a weird herbal flavor and bitterness to it. A touch chalky.

GABF 2013. Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a thin head. Very roasty, chocolate, light coffee, a bit spicy piney hoppy aroma. Kind of goopy sweet malty flavor with some coffee and roast notes. I wasn’t a big fan of this one.

draught@Erzbierschof - pretty black beer with a solid dark beige foam; hints of sour cherries, roasted coffeish malts and licorice; some sourness, medium-bodied and quite dry; bitter-sweet finish with more cherryish and licorice lilke notes though the moderate sourness keeps control of the aftertaste
