3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown/black color with a decent sized tan head that persists for a little while. Smells of bitter roasted grain with a heavy coffee type aroma. A bit earthy, tart fruit, and dark brown sugar round out the nose. The flavor is burnt sugar, tart fruit, sweet candied sugar, a hint of earth and little else. Fairly dry finish. Medium to light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a bubbly roasty bitter mouthfeel. So either my palette has really changed since I last tried this or this beer is just not the same. I could drink this if I had to, but with so many choices these days why should I settle for mediocrity?

Very dark / black. Iím impressed with the coloring of this beer. The label design is also top notch. Very smokey flavor, not sweet at all (80% cacaoish?) I like it.

Pours as black as my evil heart. Nice head of foam. However, no distinct aroma. Initial taste is a little thin. Not much in the finish. On the other hand, there's nothing offensive about this. Still, I expected more.
