3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coffee, licorice and brown sugar in both aroma and flavor. Sweetish, medium bodied. Bitter walnut aftertaste. Tasty, but the licorice character is somewhat exaggerated. Nevertheless a fine beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes in a flask bottle which is quite unique. Pours a wonderfully clear and clean mahoganey with virtually no head, but what is there is tan and lasts only seconds. The aroma is a sweet dark chocolate that makes your mouth think it is about to get into some fine dark and smooth piece of chocolate. Coffee notes follow and then a bit of hop tickles your nose. Initial flavor is a silky smooth roasted chocolate malt flavor that finishes mildly hoppy. A full-bodied palate and silky mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown with a red hue and an OK head. The aroma has nice notes of chocolate. the flavour has notes of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of licorice. I think it’s OK, but I would like it to have more complexity, and I prefer the Cream Stout.
