3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. bottle. Dark malt aroma with suggestions of dark chocolate, spicy rye, coffee, maple sugar, earthy hop and faint smoke. Deep, dark brown in color with a very fine, lasting, khaki head. Flavor profile is nicely hoppy, spicy, earthy and darkly sweet, with more semi-sweet chocolate, licorice and faint coffee, blending with the rye and lightly piney, leafy hop presence, closing with a light-moderate dosage of bitterness. Smooth and lightly viscous on the palate with fine effervescence and a medium-full body. Interesting and tasty stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours perfectly black into the glass, with a light ring of lace that dissipates into trace spot lacing. The nose is of roasts, chocolates and agave indeed. Flavors have predominantly roasts and chocolates, rye all the way through the earthy finish, which ends with a kiss of licorice. The mouthfeel is smooth and spicy on the palate. Nice newest incarnation of the ’Fade to Black’ series.
