4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton. Pours a very deep black with a frothy mocha head. Powerful breakfast aromas of coffee, burnt malts, dark breads, graham cracker, vanilla. The taste is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla cream, slightly sweet milk, and dark fruits. Delicious finish of bitter coffee and roasted malts with some sweetness. The full body and thick mouth are on par for the style. Very very good.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a very dark brown with little to no head. Carbonation is low with a full body. Aroma is vegemite and coffee mixed with dark chocolate. There's a hint of vanilla and some fruity hops. Taste begins fairly sweet and turns into chocolate. Coffee becomes evident at the end of the palate with a delicate and not over powering bitterness. There's some burnt notes, perhaps a slight hint of bourbon and some pine resin. Beautiful!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite black with barely any head. Has a complex taste of coffee, caramel and dark rum. Heavy body, with great palate. The alcohol is definitely present, but doesn’t obscure the other tastes

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Opaque. Roast aroma, coffee. Roast malt. Heavy body, but not quite as viscous as Mikkeller George. Silky smooth flavors of dark sweet malt, coffee, vanilla meld nicely. Not overly bitter -- bitterness, roast and sweetness in good harmony. Clean finish. Super delicious!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance is jet black, pours like thick syrup into the glass. No head at all. Aroma- rich chocolate cake, vanilla, dark coffee/espresso, fudge, booze, port, dark rum, dark fruit undertones, caramel. Taste- loads of chocolate, bitter coffee, caramel, burnt sugar, treacle, vanilla, hint of almond, tiramisu. Oily, syrupy mouthfeel, thick and dense, sweet booziness coats the tongue, almost chewy. A lasting, sweet finish. Just the right amount of sweetness. This is a sipper, and is exceptional.
