Pours a pitch black hue with some brown around the edges. Nice aromas of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and a slight hop presence. Thick in the mouth with similar flavors to the nose. The finish is long and well balanced between sweet and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep black with a foam ring that hugs my glass. The aroma contains slight yeast, chocolate, roasted malts, and an undertone of hops. In the flavor I picked up on a medium lingering bitterness, hints of burnt carmel, mild roasted malts, and bitter cocoa. The booze is masked nicely. Overall I enjoyed this very much.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours opaque mahogany, with no head. Taste is weird, almost soured dark malt, a bit of ash, and a layer of brown sugar sweetness. Taste is ashy, gross coffee grounds, sweet malt, and a long, dirty finish. Thin and very low carbonation.
