3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber thanks to GothGargoyle! A nice foamy tan head hits on top of a pitch black body. Aroma is coffee, smoke, roast malt and mild fruit. Taste is bitter chocolate, some smokiness, light coffee. Medium body, medium carbonation. A nice, but not extraordinary beer. Very easy drinking though.

Solid black with a minimal pale head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, liquorice, dates, figs, soy sauce. Medium body, roasty bitter on the palate with an umami and slightly astringent finish. Taste is espresso, dark chocolate, almond, black peppercorn, grains of paradise. Could do with a little more maltiness for balance.

Serving: 22 oz. bottle from 5000. Thanks Andre! Dark brown pour. Dry roasty nose with mineral and earth notes. Slightly dull flavor wise. Earthy with burnt malt, flint, and light dark chocolate notes. Medium to full body. Solid but not mind blowing.
