3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like roasted grain with a hint of cocoa coffee. Lighter on the palate than expected. A hop bite after some smokey roasted malt. Very flavorful. Probably best described as a porter. But has enough hop bite for the black ipa category. A good changeup from overly sweet stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Black, with a thick brown head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and dark fruits. The flavour is roasted malty, with chocolate and coffee, notes of wood and vanilla, and a warm roasted finish. Tasty.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
65cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured pitch black with a two finger mocha tan head. Looks amazing in glass. Aroma: Dark espresso coffee, lots of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, dark fruit. Taste: Espresso coffee, dark chocolate, loads of vanilla, licorice, chocolate chip cookies, caramelized creme brulee, dates, plum, toffee, dark fruit, oak, whole wheat bread, currants. Medium carbonation. This is so thick, creamy & chewy it almost drinks like a milkshake, awesome! A full body with vanilla and dark espresso beans in the long finish. This beer is classed as an American Strong Ale. It looks and drinks like a stout but it kinda lacks the roastiness of a stout. Anyway this is an absolutely amazing brew!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.65 bottle. A very dark brown color and a humungous, brown head. Aroma of cookies, this is the absolute epitome of cookishness and biscuitness complete with brown sugar, dough, waffle chocate, and a hint of almonds - a splendid fragrance reminiscent of a mixture of Quatro and Bafomet. Taste is sweet, malty, chocolaty, delicately smacking of alcohol. A full body, a creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is medium long, somewhat diluted, the shackles of alcohol seem to be straining towards the end. Overall not a bad beer; if only it continued the style of its top-of the-class aroma until the end.
