4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Grappa heat in espresso, shiny chocolate crack aroma. More of that all in the taste. There’s a herbal spur in the side of the massively smooth malty flank. You know how I said Magic Rock ought to take Dark Arts and stitch a bigger pair of bollocks onto it? That’s what they’ve gone and done.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at CBC 2016, yellow session. Pours black, tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, cocoa, wood, peat. However I believe this one was off because it had certain, very unpleasant plastic aroma/flavor probably from the plastic cask it was served in. When I asked the guys tried to assure me it was just peat, but since I’ve tried handfull of peated BA beers and whiskys I wouldn’t agree on that. Anyway looking at other rates especially at untappd seems something went wrong. It’s a shame cause it seems like a very good brew. Another candidate for re-rate.

Cask? @CBC 2016.
Poured near black with a brown looking head.
Wood diminates totally in the aroma, some roasted elements and bitter chocolate.
Flavor has mostly wood as well, some roastedness.
Didn´t like it at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a thick cocoa head. Aroma is chocolate orange but it’s very faint. A strong alcoholic taste, tastes like a shot of orange liqueur.
