3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Bottle into a tulip. Pours a rich dark brown with a thick tan head. Smells of chocolate and toffee. Thick, heavy mouthfeel. Chocolaty and alcoholic, with a caramel and a bitter roasty coffee finish. Almost too bitter on the back end.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nitro keg at Deep Ellum. Pours a deep black, with a hint of ruby, and an enormous tab head that eventually fades and sales at about a quarter inch. Aroma is surprisingly present for a nitro pour, with a good deal of coffee, a hint of dark chocolate and roast. Taste is where it’s all happening though. Huge chocolatey sweetness at the front, followed by some roasted bakery bitterness, coffee coming through, a hint of nuts and then a big coffee aftertaste. A good deal of boozy goodness present too. Finish is smooth and creamy, reasonably thick but not overly so for a nitro, and that coffee aftertaste just lasts and lasts and lasts. A truly gorgeous beer. Even on nitro! Must try the bottled version, I can only begin to imagine how good it is.

Pours black. Smells like roasted malt and alcohol. Strong taste of roasted malt, coffee, and dark bitter coffee. Great, complex flavor.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich and complex. Full reamy mouthfeel is first thing that stands out. Burn mollasses tar aroma, full white head. Body is lighter than you would think for something so flavorfull. No alcohol burn, masked iver by layers of roasted flavor. Espresso, rum, vanilla, dark cherries and dark bread. Only have one, a rrue slow sipper.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Rich, full bodied, dark chocolate color. Tan head. Took a few sips, finally found that nutmeg taste. Noticeable chocolate roast, not too sweet. Leaves a nice flavor on the tongue. Ashamed it took me so long to try this.

From the bottle. Black pour with dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Tastes of somewhere between semi-sweet and bitter chocolate - a perfect combination of rich fullness, but not too sweet. Full mouthfeel. Lots to love here. One of my favorite beers.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Unbelievably smooth, despite the high ABV. Slick and chewy, nice mildly bitter roast grains dominate. Black with a small creamy beige head, sticky lacing. Some smoky bitterness lingers. A classic!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank from a snifter glass on draft from Parry's in HR. Dark, dark, almost oily color. Thick head that could not be more dense. Artistic lacing all the way down the glass. Hints of chocolate, roasted coffee and caramel with a light hop finish. Pretty high ABV at 9%, so drink responsibly!
