Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a small foamy light brown head that left a bit of lacing .The aroma was faint fruity hops with notes of red wine, cola and roasty malts. The flavor was thin, bitter and roasty with notes of red wine, fruity hops, cola, anise, tobacco and almost gin. Medium length finish. Light to medium body. Weird and not good.

Bomber from Whole Foods. Pours dark blackish brown with tan head that clings well. Nose is black caramel malt, cacao, mild roasty and rauchy molasses. Tastes roasty caramunich malty, with cacao, lactic milk-stoutiness, and a creamy finish. Fairly dense palate heft and a notable complexity throughout. This one is a repeat buyee for Doc Lock.

Very dark with a tannish brown head. Smooth and creamy, roasted malt and nuts, coffee and cocoa, then a hint of cherry. Very full and a long lingering finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear black pour with a medium fading rocky head. Nose is roasty and a touch smokey with roasted black grains and un-sweet cocoa. Taste is smokey and cocoa-y with a earthy cocoa sweetness and thorough herbal hop notes. Sweet overall but not in a chocolaty way. Just a bit too smokey for me. Good in chili Im sure.
