3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark black color with a huge, deep tan, creamy head. Aroma has a good dose of hefty roasted malt, modest chocolate, smooth toasted notes, light raisin with some resin and citrus hops in the nose. Flavor starts off with a nutty, deep roasted malt presence, light licorice, very creamy, almost milky feel and a light/modest hops kick. Body is dense with a slightly oily feeling. Overall a pretty tasty brew. Would definitely have again. Looks like it was batch #27..kinda smeared so hard to tell.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is a great hop presence of sharp west coast pine and resin with a great roast coffee behind it. Pours black with a nice light khaki head. Tastse is very hoppy with great pine resin and a grass sting. The hops give way to a very roasty stout. Notes of bitter ground coffee and roasted malt. Best of both worlds.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thnx to Themicuda1971. Has a pitch black colour with a big, tanned head on top, consisting out of big bubbles and has very decent lacing. Aroma is big and roasty with hoppy touches, as well as molasses and grapefruit. Flavour starts of sweet with loads of licorice and a touch of booze, but ends nice and hoppy. Very well balanced between hops and malts and the licorice makes the mouthfeel very dry and bittersweet. Great brew!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of MrHangover. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a thin tan head and lots of unbroken lace. The aroma is rich roasted malt and liqourice alcohol. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate palate with lots of liqourice and rich red berry fruit and alcohol too. This is a big beer that is fully deserving of its rating.
