4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(12 oz. into imperial pint) Pours a rich black color with very little head and moderate lacing on the glass. The aroma out of the glass is immediately of the coffee roast, and chocolate malts. It actually smells just like a good cup of espresso. The flavor is exactly the same, with a slight hint of the roast with an overwhelming flavor of espresso. The finish is very smooth and refreshing. Let this one warm up a bit to fully appreciate the complexity and subtlety of all the flavors.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into pint glass from Whole Foods. Aroma is milk chocolate, coffee. Appearance is almost opaque black--small area dark brown at edges of glass with nice sparkle, 1/2 width off white milky head with nice sticky lacing. Taste is sweet milk chocolate and moderately bitter coffee. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and absent carbonation. Overall, a nice mix of sweet and bitter that dances on the edge of bitterness for me but doesn’t go over the edge to bitter dominant. A little thin.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is big on roasted coffee. The taste is also huge on coffee with hints of chocolate and vanilla. It’s got a nice dry and roasty palate. This was tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours deep brown to black with tan head. Dark chocolate and raisins on the nose. Flavor opens with mild fruity notes, quickly overtaken by dark chocolate. Coffee and alcohol come through on the finish, somewhat bitter and warming. Medium body. A little rough around the edges, but enjoyable.

Solid dark brown color with a good sized frothy beige head that persists. Big coffee on the aroma and creamed coffee on the flavor. Could use a big more sweetness and body to stand up to the huge coffee, but tasty just the same.
