3.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Pizza Port Solana Beach. Sweet caramel and slight chocolate aroma. Black/brown color with a medium tan/cream head. Creamy texture starting with a bit of zing and dark malts then creamy smooth bitterness and a heavy feel going down the throat. Damn good.

22oz bottle, shared by somebody after Jackie-O’s 8th Anniversary. Dark brown, near black color. Thin, light brown head, couple decent bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate spicy taste, lightly bitter, minimal sweet, though a light heat. Interesting, spicy winter warmer. Good bitter roastiness.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 2009 bottle tasted December 2013.
The Great Cellar Purge of 2013 continues. Dark pour, short-lived tan head. Nose of soy sauce and coffee, just a hint of cigarette ash. So far all is well -- but then the aroma is swamped by an overwhelming smell of rubbing alcohol. Relatively sweet with roasty bitterness in the middle of the flavor profile. Throat-warming, appropriate carbonation. But the rubbing alcohol kills it.

Draft. Not sweet, a nice slight bite at
The end. I get the burnt flavors, but not particularly the chocolate. Nice body, smooth. Almost too thin, but it passes.
