3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick, tan head and dark body. Starts with coffee but stays a bit bitter with a roasted aftertaste. Could use a bit more sweet balance.

Pours a creamy black with minimal head. To me this tastes like an imperial stout mixed with an IPA, about 70/30.Although light, it has a definite hoppy bitterness to it. Quite good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tulip. dark body with dark tan long lasting creamy head. It smells very rusty up front, bitter chocolate, some coffee, but mostly like a rusted metal. It leans more over the bitter than the sweet but there is some notes of light sweetness up front and finishes withe a heavier bitter chocolate taste. Moderate body.

Bottle. Pours a deep, deep brown bordering on black, with a thin beige head. Small amount of lacing. Smells of coffee, chocolate, and dark fruits. Tastes of the same, with a bready yeast quality and a booze finish as well. Very good RIS. Love the Big Eddy series!

What makes this so much fun is how pricklingly zesty it is for a big, dense, multi-layered (flavors changesecond to second - - here a fruit, there a malt, then some roast, then some black liquorice, and then back to fruit again). Itís not a murky mass - -itís a fun beer.

I canít give anything a perfect score but this was close. Poured from a bottle. So dark I canít see the other side of the glass. Strong enough to help me relax and enjoy my evening.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dense black with tight mocha effervescence calming to a thin blanket. Huge cherry chocolate nose as smoky pungency intensifies in mouth along with array of caramelized dark fruit notes. Smooth mildly boozy body with taut, slight minerality rallying towards finish. By all means nice pour.

Bonus bottle thanks Aaron. Pours jet black with slight light brown head. Smells of chocolate and cherries / plums. Taste of burnt bitter sweet chocolate and cherries and has a nice bittering hops that lingers till your next sip. Overall itís a good brew that tends to taste better the warmer it gets.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a medium tan head. Nice lagging. Burnt raisin nose with a weak alcohol background...perhaps some toffee? Bitter, burnt taste with little alcohol apparent. Slight warming finish, still bitter and burnt. Moderate carbonation, but yet creamy. Not as complex a expected, but solid.
