3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very unique, good tasting beer. Pours an absolutely beautiful deep red with tan head. Smells of chocolate covered raspberries, and some molasses. Taste is extremely creamy, but very light for a dark beer. More chocolate covered raspberries, with a hint of kriek in the aftertaste. Had on tap at the Trappist.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with large frothy tan head. Aroma coffee and roasted malts. Medium body. Not really any alcohol. Flavor sweet up front, with dry but not bitter finish. Some chocolate and dark fruits. Not bad, a bit on the thin side but with some interesting flavors and the dry finish really helps the drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s got an opaque black body with a orange/brown head on top. The aroma is fairly plain stout - roasty and a little bit of alcohol wafting up. The flavor shows off some of the odd yeast that Mystic uses, but with too much of a charred malt profile for my tastes. Amazing thick mouthfeel made even better by creamy dense head that reminds me of a super dense cappuccino foam.
