2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours very dark brown. Aroma is heat, light roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is alcohol with some coffee and chocolate. Finish is alcohol, roast, chocolate, some balance of the sweet and bitter I guess. Thin. There’s a tag on this calling it a porter. The heat is too high for me to care what it is.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark, opaque brown and headless, I can smell it from across the room. It smells like malted joy, and tastes like milk chocolate surrounding 85% dark ecuadoran chocolate. Some beers of this style are a once a night thing but I’m glad I only have the one or I wouldn’t make it to work this week.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Brown/black with dusting of tan head. Nutty, chocolate truffle aroma. Has a dry, chalky feel on the palate. A little thin, but saved by the substantial presence of cocoa nib and chocolate malts.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for around $7. I'm confused - the label states: "designed to last until the last drop" followed up by "pour carefully in a single motion, leaving the last centimeter"? Anyhow, pours a medium frothy brown head atop an opaque black body. Nose of roasted nuts. Flavour is very similar to a nut brown, vanilla notes and minor cocoa nibs finish. Good.
