2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew marked best before 12/07/04 poured a large sized head of frothy medium sized mostly lasting but soon collapses into a foamy thick head that slowly diminishes with dark brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and black in color. No light can pass through this one its so opaque like a cave. Its aroma contained notes of creamy roasted malts dark malts and was very nice. Its mouth feel is initially flat and smooth with a lingering tingly palate. Its flavor contained thick dark beer brown malts and roasted notes. It was OK but not as goos as it looked thus disappointing me. It was more like a Schwartz beer than a porter. A very average brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(500ml bottle) Small tan head atop a black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, roast, some coffee, chocolate, burnt, light smoke, metallic, cherry. Taste is sweet, chocolate, molasses, smoke, coffee, roast, light lemon, cherry. Smooth, sticky medium-full body with low carbonation. Better than the Black Abbot, but still too sweet -- reducing sweetness 40-50% and adding some carbonation would make this much better. As it is, I still could not finish it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black in colour with low carbonation and almost no head??? Aromas of molasses, cheap chocolates, mild stewed fruit, and a bit of roasted malt. Sweet vanilla chocolate flavors dominate the palate. It’s very sweet, and the roasted malts provide almost no balance. Slick in the mouth. Even with all of its faults, it grew on me a bit. Still a bit problematic.
