Pours black with a thin light chocolate head. Head is thin with great lacing. Aroma is sweet with very light hints of chocolate. Can definitely get the oatmeal in the body of the beer. A bit silky with hints of chocolate and bitterness similar to baker’s chocolate.

12 ounce bottle, pours pitch black with little carbonation, aromas of light roast, oats, chocolate, and some anise. Flavors follow suit, light silkyness on the palate. Solid stout overall where it doesn’t taste like a 9% abv beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a small brown head which slowly disappears. Nose is full of charcoal and powdery cocoa. A hint of aniseed comes through as it warms. Taste shows the cocoa powder nicely with loads of liquorice behind it all. A touch ashy and tarry which works nicely as it isn’t too over the top. Drinks pretty easy for a 9%er. Good stuff

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a thick, deep brown with a lasting tan head. The nose has a bit of chocolate and roasted malt.
