Bottle: The aroma consists chocolate, citrus/grapefruit, pine, and light roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency. It has a two finger tan head with excellent retention. There’s some nice ringed lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet/sugary chocolate. There is some sweet citrus and fruitiness in the middle. The finish has moderate grapefruit, pine, molasses, and some burnt notes.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Batch #44, 2012. Oops :(. Pours opaque black with a small brown creamy head that dissipates leaving solid lacing. So far, so good. Aroma is really chocolatey, like REALLY chocolate, with heavy roasted malts and a hint of anise. Some molasses on the back end as well. Flavor has all of the above, light plus sweet and medium bitter, rich and cocoa filled, coffee grounds, a hint of sharpmess about it. Lingering roasty bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. This guy held up well, methinks
