3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a faint head. Rich, slightly sweet aroma of roasted malt and caramel. A bit thin tasting at first, but that is followed by nice flavors of coffee, malt and caramel; some sweetness but a slightly bitter aftertaste keeps it from being cloying. Nice effervescent feel, and not heavy as I expected a black ale to be. Pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy chestnut with 2-finger tan head. Nose is nuts, cacao, caramel, hops. Tastes nutty, with some caramel, cacao, and a medium to light finish with light palate heft. Like an overly perfumed crack whore, this one looks good, smells much better than it tastes, and sucks, but not unless you pay for it first.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark brown, near black. Some suds. Very faint aroma of caramel, sugar, malt, and leaves. Taste is the same. More roasted malt than anything here. It has a good clean lingering flavor. Good texture and pretty enjoyable alcohol flavor.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Earthy, malty aromas preceed a translucent brown pour with non-lasting off-white head and no lacing. The taste is slightly sweet. Mildly malty, musty earthiness, and cardboard with perhaps the barest touch of molasses. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, rather flat tasting - drinkable, but one I would buy again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Some black licorice in the aroma. Light to medium bodied, pretty straight up. Filtered amber-brown body. Not unlike a true English Mild in some respects, but cheap and neutered. Brown chocolate, doughy malt notes. Something about it is just too thin, lifeless. Odd fruity ale tones too. A weird beer for sure. Let it sit out for 20 minutes...gets better as it breathes.
