Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass is dark, almost black. Very malty, alcoholic and complex aroma. Starts very strong, alcoholic, with notes of liquorice and strong coffee. Malty-oily finish. Unusual, but good!

1.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 A drain pour the 2nd time around; I won’t forget it now, that’s for damn sure.
1st time: Oh . . . man. Absolutely cloying-sweet, just syrupy beyond belief. At least it’s drinkable but golly gee, how about some toning down or some balance?

Bottle from Ledger’s. Very dark brown pour with ruby edges and a large creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, treacle and roasted malt. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, a little smokey, a little chocolate and perhaps treacle. It’s really quite tasty. Possibly a bit of sasparilla. Finishes with diminishing sweetness and increasing bitterness.
