2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pitch black and completely opaque with a two finger beige head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Good retention with sporadic spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly smokey roasted dark malt aroma with a strong burnt/acrid character with hints of charred toast, used coffee grounds, ashtray and liquid smoke. Very subtle chocolate presence and a touch of lactose but I’m not picking up any cherry or dark fruit sweetness. As it warms, I’m picking up some dark cocoa, oatmeal and a faint sweeter chocolate presence but the roast /burnt malt is really overpowering.
Medium body and slightly over carbonated but this beer has more complexity and interesting flavor than the nose suggested. There’s still a heavy roasted malt character but it’s decently balanced by sweeter notes, lactose and subtle cherry sweetness. Up front there’s some smokey, deeply roasted malt flavor with hints of bitter dark chocolate, burnt toast, oatmeal and robust coffee grinds. This is countered by some lighter malt sweetness with milk chocolate, caramel and toffee while the lactose gives a sweet and slightly creamy presence that counters the heavy roast. As it warms up a bit, the cherry flavor stands out a bit more but is still heavily muted by the prominent malt bill and creamy lactose. The carbonation and mouthfeel are a bit off but the ABV is well masked making this beer pretty easy to drink. Overall, not all that exciting but decent enough.

bottle. Brown with one finger head. Very chocolate forward, as expected. Mild sweetness. On the thin side. Definitely some cherry. Decent, but not much more than that.
