4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The description is correct, this is a LUSCIOUS DARK ALE. The aroma was a brilliant blend of hops and sweet malty flavors. The taste took all the flavors in the aroma and added a touch of bourbon and oak to make it absolutely a must have for any fan of well aged beer.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Black like used oil. Licorice, burnt wood, very dark roast. Completely unsweetened. Body is a bit thin and too carbonated for something that advertises itself akin to used motor oil.
