3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is chocolate, mocha, rich roasty malts and vanilla. Taste is full and similar to the aroma and finishes quite smoothly albeit somewhat blandly. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pretty boring porter with a good roast. Pours an opaqe black with a thick beige head. The aroma is roasted malts with a bit of coffee. Flavour is the same. Not too much bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious and satisfying contender to Hoyne’s Dark Matter. Aroma is akin to a Russian Imperial Stout - burnt and slightly bittered with lots of roasted malt. Appearance is again similar to a RIS...small brownish head, beautiful black colour. Satisfying and rich flavor of roasted malt, black licorice, and a slight hop bite. Tastes "cold" and and a bit harsh if that makes sense, but once sipped it is a warming brew. Leaves a lingering licorice-esque bitterness that is exceedingly pleasant. Wonderful brew, would almost take it over Dark Matter.
