3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from CaptainCougar. Thanks again Tom. Opaque brown/black color with a tan head that died in weird ways. Dark toasted malty aroma. Full bodied with normal carbonation. Flavor is sweetish toasted malt with hints of toffee and coffee. Touch of treacle. Date fruit aspects throughout. Finishes more sweet than dry. A certain astringency occurs in the finish. Hardly a trace of heat. Delicious.

Bottle from Shigadey. Poured a black color with a moderate rocky brown head that mostly lasted and produced sticky legs and good lacing. Good roasted chocolate, coffee, ginger and alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture. Heavy complex roasted bittersweet stout flavor with a smooth bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout brew.
