4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Opened this one to celebrate my daughter turning 2 years old. Pitch black in color, espresso head. Oily. Ashy, roasty aroma, licorice and vanilla. Flavor is intense, espresso notes, salty licorice, vanilla, roastedness, this coming in layers, leaving the vanilla last. Massive beer, lovely flavor, but the aroma and balanced could be better. Still, I’m not complaining, enjoyable nonetheless

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Colour...jet black with a thin tan head. Nose...very vanilla-y, sugary and of course, coffee-y! Palate...sharp, dry, sweet and bitter with gobs of vanilla laden, day old coffee, replete with grounds. The finish is full, bitter and jazzy with brimming with machiato.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from The Party Source. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a small brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of vanilla, cocoa, caramel, coffee, fudge, brown sugar, cookie, and just a hint of earth and roast. Very sweet and all about the beans. Flavor of cocoa and vanilla and coffee beans, tobacco, roasted malts, toasted brown sugar, and a hint of ash. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a mouthfeel that is simultaneously sweet and roasty-bitter, without the two melding in balance. Still, they work and mask the ABV. A lot to like here. Great beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is vanilla and roasted malts with a small sting of alcohol. Taste is sweet with vanilla dominating, but also bitter chocolates and some coffee. Actually there may be a tad too much of the vanilla, but I don’t care, cause it’s fucken awesome. Superb even.
