3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. This was a bit harsh up front, but better as it warmed. Aroma of bitter, roasted coffee, malted candy, and light booze. Body is quite yeasty, bready, with a good balance, big bite, and light roast. Would have expected the abv to be well over 10%. Powdery malted candy, rich, sweet bourbon, and a good, nutty caramel. Finish is very dark malted malt. Overall, a very strong, interesting stout.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a fine bubbled khaki head in this glass. The nose is roast dominant, with some dark fruits, I suppose. The flavor profile is more roast, with some light smoke, more fruit esters, a little earthy note, coupled with a hint of metallic. This one wasnít bad, but it didnít exactly stick out

Black. Nose is intense fruity, and spicy phenolics with some higher fruity alcohols and nearly some hot alcohol aromas. Flavor is roast and chocolately with sweet fruits at first then gets bitter in the finish. really nice dark malt flavors with a mild Belgian twist. really nice beer.

750mL bottle. Poured deeper brown with a tall, quick-forming beige head. The aroma picked up slightly sour and slightly-smoked, well-roasted black malts, with a little chocolate too.. some earthy and lesser fruity yeast accented.. nice, but it didnít come across as all that complex. The flavor found similar stuff.. lightly-smoked black malts, coffee, and chocolate at the very roasted core.. accents of vanilla too.. lightly sour smoke and coffee roast around.. spicy and earthy yeast laced throughout, and it became a bit too strong on the finish. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate.. a tad grainy for my liking toward the back.. this wasnít bad by any stretch of the imagination, but it didnít quite do it for me.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, dried fruit. The flavor is similar to the aroma, bittersweet chocolate, fruity, dried roasted malts, slight smoke. Very dry. Very tasty.

Such a great beer label. this stuff defies gravity coming out of the bottle, old 40 weight, dark tan head. like syrup i the mouth, though not sticky. I smell brandied plums, grapes, wood smoke. very fruity flavor, form raspberry to prune, bourbon, and you see its this dark and toast no roast or molasses, a dark captured in basements of poorly jarred fruit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown pour, sizeable tan head. Chicory and dark fruits on the nose. Slightly tinny/mineral-laden flavor Ė like someone added seltzer water to what I thought this was going to taste like. Love the label, but this brew isnít my favorite Ė these farmhouse ales are better when lighter, in my book.

Bottle from West Lakeview liquors: pours motor oil brownish black, lighter brown head that persists. Nose is chocolate, Belgian yeast, coffee, roasted malts, pepper possibly? On the tongue, more of the same. Elegant balance and drinkability. Lighter bodied with some peppery heat on the finish. Really nice.
