Bottle: Pours a dark brown color, with a nice beige head with nice retention. Nutty, Malty smell and initial taste. Roasted barley and a hint of caramel malt sweetness in the finish, chocolate comes into play here. Alcohol content masked fairly well, I really enjoyed this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Pours a deep opaque brown with little head and no retention. Mose is full of sweet rostiness and alcohol with a hint of....is that kerosene? Big sweet maltiness up front with a little coffee and alcohol (not near as much as the nose hinted at). Finishes long with warming alcohol and that kerosene kick. A little thinner mouthfeel than you’d hope for. Interesting brew overall but that kerosene feel takes away from it a little.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a decent head but didn’t hang around on a black body. Aroma is milky coffee, roasted notes and hints of chocolate. The chocolate comes through more in the taste not overly so, liquorice, slightly warming alcohol and light grains.
