4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Mule Bar, Winooski, VT. Deep, chestnut brown. Velvety, thin, glossy, mocha head that sticks all the way down the glass. Nose has caramel truffle. Fudge. Maple syrup. Chocolate fudge cake. The full works. Bit of a cheesecake tang to it. Taste is tangy, fruity, dark chocolate bitter. Light dryness. Some sweetness, but no way as much as the aroma might suggest. Silky palate. Drinks way under the ABV. Finishes long, truffly, chocolatey, light bitter. The sweetness kicks in right at the end. Super stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle at GABF 2015. Pour is deep brown with a small tan colored head and good lacing. Light maple, dark chocolate, espresso, some vanilla, light coconut, brown sugar and toffee in the Aroma. Taste is big dark cocoa, coffee, light maple, vanilla, toffee, caramel, and raisins. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Tasty stuff, but could really benefit from a little more body.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. This is a spring 2014 variant. Pours black with frothy tan head that lingers. Heavy cocoa flavor with exceptional boozyness for a non barrel aged variety. Typical Lawson's aroma.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is wonderful, hints of maple, roasted malts, molasses. Flavor is slightly smokey, a bit astringent, but not bad. Overall a very nice beer. Thanks BJ!
