3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can poured into a wine glass.
Opaque black with no head.
Aromas of dark chocolate, espresso and wood grilled peppers, with hints of smoke and chicory.
Chocolaty flavors, roasted malts, noticeable spiciness but not extreme, faint tartness and medium bitterness.
Light-med bodied and quite dry, interesting but not satisfying enough to finish the hole glass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
aroma is initially dead metallic pushing forward to unsweetened bakers cocoa nibs, good roast, light pseudo smoke. hints of raspberry and other framboizen qualities. appearance is cola with beginnings of great head, oxygenated tanned dish soap bubbles that disperse very quickly leaving almost no legs and only central nucleation sans island. flavor is sweetened roast cut with tinge of smoke, fruity tartness brought by more raspberry. cocoa comes next now sweeter then as presented in nose, chilies are last and long lasting at that, wonderful smoke and intermittent hits of burn that just present enough to create salivation. amazing palate sizzles long lasting and lingers long and strong.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark brown, black in glass, no head. Strong aroma is really spicy, peppery, coco (at least as I know it’s there), almost perfum - like notes, coffee and roasting under this. Soft and round but spices and carbonation add bit sting, medium body, alcohol, sweet, long spicy-perfumed finish. Interesting but close to bit artificial feel in this. Some originality anyway.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours black with no head, and the aroma is strongly chocolate with slight hints of peppers. The taste of this beer is strongly of umami and lightly sweet, but the spice hits you a little after the initial taste. The palate of this beer combines a medium body, a slick yet thick texture, flat carbonation, and a long finish.
