4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Camp Pack. Pours a deep stout brown, like brownies or chocolate cake, with a medium tan head. Nose is roast, earth, coffee, dark chocolate, chocolate cake, and motherís love-- look hard, itís in there. Flavor is similar: roasted malts, some earth, then goes to chocolate cake, some roasted coffee, some bitter coffee, and some roast and bakerís chocolate that lingers at the top of my mouth in the finish. Medium in body, and Iím taking my time with this one- this is probably the best of the pack so far...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty, bitter, anise, roasty, chocolate and red wine. The flavor was malty with chocolate, malted milk, anise, roastiness, moderate bitterness and fairly strong floral/fruity hops and red wine. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and somewhat creamy. Very nice.

Bottle. The pour is a creamy black. The aroma is big on toffee and some malt. The taste continues the toffee, almost reminds me of mother of all storms.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fluffy appearance. The liquid, like oily coffee, is capped with a cotton-dense head the color of graham crackers. Very fluffy and so inviting I want to lay my head on it. Aroma of caramelized steak, red grapes, chocolate. Slightly smoky. Nice caramelized malt flavor: bitter dark chocolate, smoky meat, great dark fruit character, figs and prunes. The appearance translates to the mouthfeel -- full-bodied, soft as a fleece blanket. Like licking velvet. Massaging CO2, with building acridity.

Camping with beer Camp, bottle pour. Dark, roasted, hoppy! The toffee and carmalized add some interesting sweetness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at SB. Pours a murky ebony with a loose tan head that settles. Big sweet nose, lots of toffee and dark caramel and some milk chocolate. Heavy thick body with sluggish carb. Caramel, toffee, chocolate on the mid-palate...sounds like a candy bar in print, but it all has a great grain-sugar slant to it throughout. Sweet finish. Despite being sweet from the first sniff to the last swallow, this beer is never cloying, at least for me. Granted, it was my third beer of the night, but over-sweetness drives me crazy. This beer will never be confused with, say, a Southern Tier beer, despite being focused on dark sugar qualities.

35,5 cl bottle @ lusikka, PKGD 21.05.2014
Aroma has sweet chocolate notes, ans some licorice. Feels slightly artifical. Flavour is sweet with sugar, licorice root, ash, some mellow saltiness and soy sauce. Finishes with some toasted sugar. Rather sweet and unusual but kind of nice. Not sure what would happen if Iíd had to drink the whole bottle though.
