4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared by that great Weasel farmer nbutler11. My overall impression is that the texture was like a big, giant milk stout. Aroma is hellishly dark coffee and burnt dark chocolate. Flavors of the same, plus an interesting anise interaction. A little under-spiced for me, and rather lacking on the oatiness. Still, quite dark, quite smooth, and exceptionally relaxing fare for an evening in front of the terra cotta oven.

Bottle shared by Tertons at EBF tasting. Pours a black body with a tan head. Big roasty coffee notes. Sweet and oily with hints of lactose, licorice, and coffee beans. Very roasty, my big turn off.
