3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a nice looking mocha colored head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, a thin layer of burnt malts, some chocolate and a sliver of molasses. The taste starts sweet with malts and quickly leads into dark roasted malts and sweet caramel malts, chocolate and a light molasses like note. Into the finish I get more of a pleasing chocolate sensation coming to the surface adding to the interest and depth. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 12-22-2011. This bottled beer has a small semi-fizzy tan head with a long retention, semi-transparent reddish brown body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is lively, water and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer and worth trying.

Bottle to pint glass
Dark chocolate, cherry, toasted malt, and molasses. Black as night with a 2 cm thick creamy tan head that over time reduces to a thin layer with no lacing. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee along with some grains. This is pretty thin, being almost watery for me.
