3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is full of tar, chocolate, coffee, chili, smoke, corn, toasted barley and beans. The color is pitch black just like tar or engine oil. The taste is full of chocolate, coffee, chili and smoke. It feels bitter and heavy on the tongue. The finish is long and bitter. One of the most complex beers I have tasted in a long time. This is amazing!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber into tulip glass. Huge head on this that took a whole to settle down. Fun aroma that's filled with chili peppers and soy sauce. The taste is quite complex and interesting. It starts off amazing with a nice oily texture complemented by a sweet, savory, roasty flavor that stands up with the best imperial stouts. The flavor then gets a bit uncomfortably weird, with an intense vegetable flavor. I eventually got used to it and still enjoyed the beer.
