3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a big and foamy, although short lived, light tan head. Rather potent aroma that has earthy malts, chocolate, lots of licorice, and a bit of coffee. The taste is dominated by chocolate, with undertones of licorice. The aftertaste lingers for awhile and is the same as the taste. Light in body with a thin and creamy texture. Carbonation is more soft. I like most everything that is offered here. But it is very light and there isnít a whole lot here to really make it settle like a full beer. I really feel like it is missing the necessary punch that Iím looking for in something like this.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Nice dark brown/black color and light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, hint of coffee and roasted malts. This brew has tons of flavor and is very drinkable.
This is something that can keep you company thru the evening. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-29-14. Pleasant, simple aroma features scents of chocolate and brown sugar. Pours a dark brown with an amber hue. A small amount of beige head produced by the initial pour. A large amount of short-lasting beige head in the second pour. Basic appearance. Nice taste features flavors of char, dark chocolate, oatmeal, lemon, and coffee. Light to medium body. Somewhat lively and frothy in the palate. Ordinary palate effects. Overall, this is a decent and reasonably enjoyable beer, but it does not stand out in any way.
