2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had first rated this beer as low as it could go. I thought it was horrible. My review was apparently so bad the system decided to chuck it.
I stopped smoking a week ago and decided to retry.
It still didnít smell all that flavorful...it was still dark and thin, but I could taste some of the dark chocolate and coffee and malt this time around.
I got NO oatmeal, so that was still disappointing.
Not my favorite beer, not the worst.
Reminiscent of Rasputin Imperial Stout. Also not a favorite for some reason.
So, donít be angry. This score is better than the 0.2 I think it was last week.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fles bij melgers vandaan. Zwart met een crŤme kraag. Smaak en geur redelijk aan de droge kant met as en een trekkende afdronk. Veel CO2 alsof het bier iets te ver is doorvergist.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
May 5th, 2014 - Lost Coast provides us with our staple drinking for television this night, an opal black beer which, in our make shift wine glass, does indeed look like the dark side of an eight ball, a dull sheen coming from the ceiling light. The aroma features charcoal and raisins, though given the cold temperature, I donít get much more than these two dimensions in the olfactory. The carbonation is notably heavy and fuzzy - good for clearing out food and grease - but the palate is surprisingly light. More charcoal and raisin here too, and not much else, but thatís okay. For chilling with friends on a ragged couch years past its retirement date, this does the trick.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Deep brown color with the thin lasting head, light legs of lacing down the glass. Aroma is deep roasted espresso beans, charred barley, cocoa nibs.
Flavor has bold espresso grounds, base of full roasted malts with plenty of milk chocolate. Very mild sweetness in the finish. The flavor is very nice. My only complaint is the thinner body. Not as full as I was hoping after the aroma and initial sip. Overall still damn enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite effervescent which surprises - like it donít love it - a bit watery so flavour kinda diluted too - creamy but wanted it more so - expected more somehow.
