3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
OK, so my tasting notes were altered ex-post fact, by a sneaky rater (you know who you are!) Although this was the last beer (for me) of a very long night of tasting and sharing, I remember this one being tasty enough, with lots of roasted coffee and chocolate, but not too much else.

Big roasty, chocolate, coffee nose. Very sweet, lots of chocolate, lots of caramel and toffee, dark fruit, decent oak, etc. Nothing special.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
bottle courtesy of deflagro, thanks buddy! pours very black, nice head with a bit of cascading, looks like jagermeister with foam. aroma of licorice, rubber clothing, booze and chocolate, smells like jagermeister. taste is rich and salty, has a tingly aftertaste, like blood. or jagermeister. thick, coating mouthfeel, very syrupy, sweet and bitter at the same time, like jagermeister. aftertaste almost tastes just like jagermeister. damn good stuff, feel like going outside on a cold night naked with this stuff.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s highly carbonated, it pours black as coal with a huge beige head. Roasted malt aroma, liquorice, wood, light vanilla, smoke, cardboard and light sourness. The mouthfeel surprises for it’s smoothness; excellent combination of chocolate and roasted malt flavor, almost perfect, silky and powerful, with a minimal roasted malt sourness. The final is still powerful and balanced, a bit salty, and never too alcoholic. Excellent.
