3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brownish red hue. Tan thick creamy head. So much froth/foam that it looks like a root beer float. Scent of a stout, but not sweet. Pick up a bit of dark cherry in the taste and nose. I liked it, but didn’t love it. No hops in it at all, which is a bit disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle: Pours a mostly opaque dark brown with a creamy froth of effervescent tan head. Has a lightly toasted biscuity malty nose with some chocolate notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and bubbly carbonation with some light fruity notes and roasted malt bitterness before a drier slightly citurs hoppy finish. A little over-carbonated, but has good flavor and mild complexity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml cork and caged bottle shared by Jimmie. Poured a super dark brown with a smaller bubbly biege head. Aroma has a strong spiceness about it along with some chocolate pudding skins, barrel, vanilla extract, and some burnt banana foster’s. Body is loaded with very strong carbonation, a thinner mouthfeel and a lingering burning aftertaste. Flavor of bad chocolate, wet toast, odd vanilla, over ripe fruits. Blah.

Will pour a five+ finger cream head that fades very slowly to a thin layer leaving a thick lace. Black color, no highlights. Strong carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Roasted malt nose and flavor is malty, bready, fairly smooth. The 7% ABV is totally hidden. $9.99 for a 750ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Bottle shared at The Kernel during the later hours of Nate’s Final Push. Dark brown pour with a foamy, off-white head. Dark sugar throughout, also some brown sugar, light burnt plastic, roasted malts, cocoa. A bit of dark fruits, brown sugar and toast. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, dark with short-lived roastiness. Alright.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle corked and caged. Pours black with a two finger tan head. Smells of roated malts with hint of molasses. Taste is sweet fruit and bitterness up front with a little bit of belgian funk and spiceyness at the end. Nice carbonation with a thin mouth feel which seems unusual given the appearance and taste. I would recommend.
