4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle into a pint can big elm glass, pours a dark black with brown hues. Head is light brown, light, loose bubbles, 3cm ring, some lacing. Aroma is a mixture of matl bases grass, sweet coco, dark molasses and dry chocolate. Taste is dry and slightly bitter coco, malty satisfaction comes in the flush going down, with dark choco drifts and mild sweet coffee, maybe decaf, holding reigns. Body is adequately deep, satisfying and rich, but not overlly syrup thick rich, nice, dry, malt bases backbone rich. Bitter and dry finish leads me back for the inviting roasty coca hints from the beginning. will it go round in circles?

Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee and molasses. A coffee flavor comes through for me along with chocolate. Lighter than I expected with a lot of sweetness from the malt. Just a little hop bite at the end. The roasted malt comes through as well, pretty smooth and overall very good.
