4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a 1 finger, soapy to creamy tan head that has good retention. Aroma is full of roast and nutty notes, some chocolate, dark coffee, burnt sugar, licorice and light, but sharp dark fruit notes. Flavor is slightly sweet caramel and chocolate up front, reminds me of a Riesen’s candy, actually, then a little char, nutty notes, coffee, a little toffee, light leather and mineral notes and some light fruity and pine notes to the finish. Medium body with a creamy feel throughout and a light to moderate carbonation with a fairly soft feel. Very good stuff overall, the flavor profile is dead on, I could drink a ton of this stuff, unfortunately the price and alcohol content means I won’t.

Deep black pour. The nose is a little bit roasty and chocolatey scented. The nose is lovely. Roast and cocoa. There’s a nice hoppiness and a bit of soft sweet toastiness. Nice beer - drinks like much less than an 8% beer.

Fat carbonation. Very roasted,black coffee and creamy at the same time, the body is not that gooey as expected. Alcohol is well hidden- medium to full body I would say. Leaves quite long lasting aftertaste of roasted malt. Bit decreasing overall cuz was something between imp and regular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Monte Carlo Pub (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a black body with maroon glints and a thin beige creamy head. Complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, roasted coffee, and plummy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its smooth malty taste carries woody, plummy, and chocolate notes. Ends with a long, robust bittersweet finish. Very nice.
