3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with a khaki head that fades to a ring. Aroma is molasses, licorice, a hint of coffee, and a little alcohol. Taste starts with molasses and licorice then goes to chocolate, coffee, ash, and bitterness in the finish. Very good.

12 oz bottle from Crajun. Thanks. Pours an opaque black color with a small tan head. The aroma is molasses, anise, dates, raisins and a trace of coffee. The taste is roasted grains, with black licorice, molasses, dark fruits and burnt toast. The palate is full, viscous and creamy with soft carbonation. The finish is long and dry. Overall: simply outstanding brewski.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from the great Texan, KAggie. I am running between the raindrops today attempting to get some work done in the hop yard...the damn things are growing like crazy with all this rain. I needed some sustanance, not wanting to get all drowsy with a full stomach I decided to consume this on my first break of the string-trimming session. A quarter acre of hops is alot to do on an empty stomach. This pulled me through the worst of the hand work. Dark as a black steers toucous on a moonless prairie night. Now that I have the Lebowski quote and the Texas homage out of the way.....(the Aggie sent me big beers from the big state). ring of tan head, nose of dark malts and cold coffee. Yes, a harbinger of things to come. body is large but not overly so. Coffee comes out early that is well entwined with dark bitter malt. I will not do my usual rant on the overuse of coffee since this was not the case..but pretty close for my picky self. This one is looking at me from the glass and daring me to keep going...you are on. Sweet tingly finish with some hints at bing cherries. Lacing looks like monochromatic abstract art found on the sides of rail cars. If this came in larger bottles it would be dangerous.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[355ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Black pour, large tan head. Reduces very quickly to a thin lacing. Strong boozy aroma of vanilla and alcohol. Sweet, slight sherry and raisin flavour but there’s plenty of deep, almost spicy malt. Chocolate in there too. Nice stuff

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Black, cola hued edges, thin to moderate beige head, spotty lacing. Deep roasty soy on the nose. Stale graham cracker and a bit of alcohol as well. Strong chalky roastiness up front, some soy, lighter than the nose suggested. Backside is a little dry and chalky. Definitely malt sided, soy, roasted malts, and graham cracker. Not bad, big, but also fairly average. Thanks for the bottle Bill!
