4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It has a slow thick pour which is very dark. In the glass it looks nearly opaque and black in color. On top there is a tall light brown head. The head has good retention and leaves some splotchy lacing on the glass. The aroma has sweet and roasty maltiness. It’s bready and grainy with hints of dark fruit and noticeable alcohol. There is a lot of full bodied sweet dark roasted barley malt wrapped up with some mellow boozy alcohol. There are notes of chocolate, dark dried fruits, golden raisons, burnt sugar and dark/burnt toasted bread. The finish has some leafy hop flavor and mild bitterness creeping in for some balance. Overall it still has plenty of residual sweetness in the end. Its not overpowering or cloying at all but it will slow down the drinkability as it lets you know it’s a big beer. On the tongue it has a slick viscose feel. There is just enough carbonation to ease it over the palate.

Beautiful dark chocolate pour w/ retaining mocha head that leaves a ring of lacing. An awesome aroma that is robust w/ toffee, caramel, malt, & fruit draws you in. The taste is true to the aroma & quite complex in flavor. The mouthfeel is perfect! It’s light & creamy while carrying the immense flavors in this beer. Simply outstanding!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brun, pratiquement noir qui laisse passer du rouge, sous sa mousse, mince, toutefois persistante. C’est chocolaté comme première impression olfactive. En s’y remettant, je perçois un mélange de fruits secs et de mélasse. Ça semble simple comme description des odeurs, mais c’est plutôt intense. Le liquide soyeux en bouche, fait glisser des saveurs de torréfaction, de café-crème, de carrés aux dattes et de miel de sarrasin. Encore-là, ça garoche. (992-280114)

22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark almost black with a very nice tan head and tons of lacing. Aroma of fruit and coffee nice and strong. Taste has the sweetness of the fruit and malts combined with coffee notes and a slight bitterness combined with a hint of smoke. Great beer absolutely delicious.
