4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Nose is malty. Very rich and creamy on the palate. Taste is full of dark roasted malt, some coffee notes, slightly bitter on the finish. A very tasty beer that pairs well with ribs off the grill.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at O’riley & Conways, pours a clear dark brown with an off whie head, the aroma was pretty sweet with a good kick of chocolate and a hint of coffee even, the flavor has quite a bit of chocolate at first with a finish of coffee and burnt malt, hmmm, interesting, really not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a short-lived dark beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, smoky brown malts, chocolate, and a bit of cheese, with lesser accents of rye and a touch of wood. The flavor found sweet cocoa, vanilla, and raisiny notes at the core, with peppery notes and more spice on the finish.. just OK. Light-medium bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. drinkable, but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Brown pour with light tan head. Smells of caramel, toasted malts and slightly nutty. Tastes a little sweet on the front with a very slight bitter finish. Very good

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle, fresh and new on the shelves. Amber-brown body. Thin, glass rimming head. Brown chocolate, coffee in the aroma. Medium bodied despite the relatively big ABV. Quite well balanced and drinkable. Smooth caramel, toffee, brown chocolate flavors. Nails it for the style.
