3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Fresh 12oz bottle for 3.99. I can dig it. Pours dark brown with an initial foamy yellow white head that fades a bit leaving a decent film of sticky lace on the outer edges of this newly found tulip at my neighborhood PTA thrift shop. Nose is toasty, fruity, some raisin, banana, kinda like a toned down dunkelweizen. Flavor is light, fruity, refreshing, with notes of dark fruits, tobacco, and toffee. A real winner here whatever "style" it is.

Pours a dark ruby brown almost black I keep looking at it and I havenít noticed it staring back at me yet. The head is big, the lacing on the glass is nice. 4 out of 5 for looks, because I thought it was going to stare back at me, and I just canít tell if it is... itís concerning.
The aroma is rich, lots of cocoa and plum... some brandy some floral notes a little molasses.... very enjoyable, very inviting.
The flavor is lots of dark chocolate... not like cocoa powder, mut more like a bar of like 85% dark chocolate or something. Itís got some molasses, some bitter herbal notes, some raisin & plum, but remains relatively dry. Gracious this is wonderful.

Draught in a flight. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate head. I got very little smell off this. Taste has some heavy roasting in it with some subtler sweetish spices underneath. Very interesting drink.
