4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Oily black with a very small bit of dark brown near the top. Tan foam resides quickly to a thin film & semi-chunky collar. Aroma of rich dark cocoa, fudge, smooth vanilla, creamy oats, a small touch of smoke & a little bit of roasty char. Very slight oatmeal cookie aroma with a bit of ashiness & booziness behind it. Flavor is pretty complex; lots of roasted malts, lightly burnt caramel & brown sugar, a touch of anise, oatmeal cookie, hints of vanilla, some moderately dry coffee notes, a slight booziness, & a super rich, dark chocolate fudgy finish. Robust, thick mouth feel. Tasty ass stout.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours totally black with a small, diminishing brown head. The aroma
is full of vanilla with some milky chocolate notes, an impression of rhubarb and custard. The flavour is sweet chocolate, vanilla, sweet dark malt, with a long finish of roast malt and hard roasted coffee. Thick body. Possibly a love or hate beer--I’m a lover.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with Simonsen
Pours dark, black in glass, thin tanned head. Smell of coffee, ice cream,dark malts and vanilla. Medium sweet, mocca coffee, vanilla, playful with a touch of chocolate. Finishes off with a moderate bitter tail of coffee. I had very high expectations, so it was a bit of a letdown on me. Still, i have to say this is a damn good beer.
