4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle via NC trade- thanks again, John! Pours a deep, opaque midnight brown with a finger of brown head that fades quickly. Aroma of raspberry, chocolate, oak, roast, vanilla, molasses, fudge, and syrup. Flavor of raspberry, chocolate, vanilla, molasses, fudge, charred oak, roast, and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Raspberry in the start and finish. Wasn’t sure what to expect but this is tasty.

Bomber to snifter. Pours a reddish black (is that a color?). Smells of raspberry jam on burnt toast. Tastes of chocolate, raspberry, light coffee, and is very sweet! I prefer The Event Horizon from these guys!
