2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Inky black with a thin foamy head of a light tan hue. Earthy nose with some roasted black malt tones. The flavor is a bit boozy and earthy and bland, just roasted black malt in there and some gentle char, and light booze. Really one dimensional and disappointing.

This has a sticky, foamy head on a dark pour. The flavors features full on dark malts. Coffee, rye, and chocolate blend together into a sturdy whole. It starts sweet and then finishes sharp and hoppy. There is toasted coffee and cola in the aroma. A very good IS and offered at a good price, too.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and hint of hops. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, unsweetened chocolate, hint of caramel and faint hops. Full bodied, perfect carbonation and perfectly balanced. Everything works together great in this beer with no over the top flavors or bitterness that is characteristic of this style. Just a nice smooth excellent beer!
