3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draft @ AJ’s Beer Warehouse - Rochester, NY) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Light aroma of malt and chocolate with a touch of coffee. Flavor is much the same. Roasted chocolate malts with some coffee. A bit thin at the end and the flavor fades a bit too quickly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap a black body with a tan head that had mild retention. Aroma was a mix of citrus hops, roasted malts and alcohol. There were mild hints of cocoa. Flavor seemed to have a mix of roasted malts and grapefruit. There was a sweetness to it and the alcohol was certainly present. Finish was smooth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Beer Authority. Pitch black with a creamy dark brown crema-like head. The nose is quite intense. Heavy roast and a bit of light fruit as well. Cherry and heavy charry roast barley. There is a light bit of tart/acidity that I’m assuming is from the heavy roast/carafa component. A bit of a waxy flavour on the finish that I could do without. Decent though.

Bottle from Bottleselect.com. Pours dark black with red glints and a transient fizzy dark tan head. Aroma is black/burnt cereal and chocolate. Med body, quickly thinning as carb leaves. Flavor has lots and lots of smooth coffee. A little chocolate in the background. No heat at all. Yummy.
