Pours rich black with fine head of tiny tan bubbles. Nose is dry and rich dark cocoa. Taste is black coffee with just a hint of sugar on the tip, sweetness broadens and resolves with good bitters at the end. The body is smooth just a slight bit of friskiness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a medium sized darker tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is mostly a mixture smokiness and licorice, with some roasted malts and some coffee in there as well. The taste loses some of the smoky appeal, but retains much of the initial impressions I gained from the smell. I also get a bit of fruitiness as well, that being some cherry. Hints of chocolate as well. This has an oliy texture with a body that isnít exactly light, but by no means heavy either. The only fault that I can find is that there isnít to much of an aftertaste except for kind of a vinegary bitterness, which I donít actually mind. Iím very happy with this one. Its one of the best seasonal beers that Iíve had this so far early holiday season.
