3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks solid; a translucent dark cola with thin very light beige head. Smells of dark malt, oats, and mild roast. Tastes like it smells with a somewhat bitter, silky medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Black in colour with a thin tan head, light lacing. The aroma is very rich, oaty, bitter with some molasses, chocolate sweetness. The flavour is a bit thin, lightly sweet with dark chocolate, burnt malts, some bitterness. Thin mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes roasty, sweet and long. This is quite oaty, provides the finish with a kick.

Backlogged rating thanks to some kind and generous soul. The smell is malts, coffee, roasty, and cough syrup. The look is clear, brown in color, and a tan head. The taste is malts, coffee, roast, super roasty, and off.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is oats, chocolate, caramel. Appearance is jet black, with 1 finger head. Looks delicious. Taste is chocolate, caramel, slight oats, however too hoppy. Palate is carbonated and finish is too bitter. Too hoppy for this style. Kind of disappointed ...
