Bottle into glass. Chocolate flavor. Rich malts. Sweet. A lot of complexity. Unfiltered look and mouth feel. Alcohol smell and taste that is unusual for a low apv for me.

TizzleJizzle (597) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2014
330 ml bottle. Poured a heavily unfiltered dark brown with yeast floating around throughout the beer matrix with a tan top. Taste of biscuit, dough, rich chocolate malts, with a warming finish. Medium carbonation, medium body.

Verbrannzer Zucker, dunkles Malz, Bitterschokolade und Kaffee in der Nase. Am Gaumen viel Malz und starker Hopfen, etwas stumpf. Guter Kaffeegeschmack mit bitterem Nachgang. Weich und sehr angenehm im Mund.

Darwenus (528) - Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours dark brown with mahogany highlights. The head fades quickly and doesn’t leave any lace. Spicy, ripe fruit kind of aroma. The flavor is more of that; raisins, coriander, a little something like Dr. Pepper (not a bad thing). Alcohol vapor in the nose at the finish. I liked this.

Flat viscous black. Medicine and sweet waterburys compound tastes. Light for the amount of alcohol. Not my thing reallt, but appreciate the style.
