2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Cavie. Dark pour with a small white head. Aroma is chalk, roasted, and licorice. Taste is milky, chalk still, and some weirdness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cavie. Very dark color, white head. I do smell the hint of liquorish, but it's not overpowering. Maybe a hint of coffee in the flavor. Feels a little thin in the mouth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from central market. Pours a very dark brownish red color with a foamy white head. Dark chocolate aroma with roasted malts. Flavor is dry and roasted with some toasty notes. Slight burnt flavor. Good though!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty dark and actually pretty clear, with an almost auburn color when held to the light. Light brown head was about a finger but didnít last too long. Lacing wasnít much.
Definitely some chocolate, roasted malts, cocoa, nuts in the aroma.
Taste is a little odd but not bad. Roasted malts, chocolate and cocoa, nuts, and a little anise make an appearance. Not too much in the way of hops.
Body is light, creamy, and slick, with a bitter chocolate finish.
Itís ok but not spectacular.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a good sized beige head. Aroma of coffee, toast, hay, white wine, pears, and a slight toffee sweetness. Flavors follow a similar path with a semi-sweet toasty and coffee flavored malt with added interest from the yeast (slight banana, pear, and white wine flavors). No bitterness, just roast flavors and fruit. Easy to drink, good carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Good balance of elements, more exciting than black IPAs at least!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma has a touch of belgian yeast and a darker, bready malt smell. The appearance is black with a little light tan head. The taste is of dark malt with that hint of anise present the whole time. Not very complex. The palate is alright. Overall, a decent beer. That's about it.

Dark brown almost cherry pour. Decent head. Dark malt aroma with licorice. Flavor starts off as more of a stout but finishes with wheat characteristics.

Nice head. Anise. - a black licorice flavor. A nice dark beer, but beware, it will get you.
