3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown, bordering on black, with heavy, albeit diminishing dark tan head. Aroma is of smoke, roasted malts, heavy coffee along with some traces of hops. A rather pungent and sharp scent. Taste is of roasted malts, lots of smoke, liquorice, heavy duty bitter coffee and dark chocolate, roasty and bitter finish, not much hops. Pleasant, slightly oily palate, medium-long duration, appropriate carbonation. Generally improving as the temperature rises, but still rather one-sided and pedestrian.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep black pour with a frothy brown head. Aroma has smoke, roast, little coffee, not much sweetness, little hops. Taste has a lot of roast, a malt bitterness, little smoke, peat, and not much sweetness. Rather one-sided, thus the moderate score. The taste definitely improves as the temperature rises, but does not reach a very high level. Small to medium body, medium carbonation, very short duration. Poor balance, lacking a lot in a sweet, caramel backbone.
