3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma aromatic with light hint of central European hops , woody roast like bottom. 7-
Appearance there might be slight haze but that was hard to see as you might have guessed. Brownish base with darker beige like top. Some lace. 3+
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied with thinner sides. Dark roast with woody feel , slight bitterness that followed. Fundamentally fine but its character felt bit sterile. Felt factory like made…no soul.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Pulp. Black, flat, and dead looking, with almost no head. Smells sweet and syrupy with an extract aroma, like vanilla extract. Is thin and not as syrupy as it smells. . Has toasted coffee bean in the finish, but with a Starbucks frappucino feel to it. Tastes better than it smells, though, and the slightly burnt aftertaste is nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I get what they are going for. But not tinder dry enough, not enough woods and too much of that good ole brown sugar. Toffee, some raisin, some pepper in the flavor, but not enough. Slight to moderate acidity. A little watery. Quite drinkable, but only approximates the challenge I want from a beer like this. Nice conditioning and appearance.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thin milk-coffee coloured head. Liquid solid black as the ace of spades. A mix of sweet coffee and caramel aroma with a touch of toast. Very sweet taste (too sweet) of weak iced-coffee, toasted almonds finish with bitterness increasing. Palate flat and oily. Initially delicious, but difficult to drink with each new swallow - so bitter. Matched wonderfully with oatmeal and raison cookies.
