3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle; date almost entirely rubbed off. Pours black with a tan head. Raisin and brown sugar aroma, a little chocolate buried in there. Flavor is more roasty, molasses, and cocoa. However old it is, it’s a pretty tasty lighter beer, kind of in the vein of an improved Dry Stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smell of roasted malt, tar. Very dark brown colour, brown head. Aroma of ash, coffee, chocolate, a faint of vanilla. Not so roasted flavour as the colour and smell would imply. Bitter, but also mid sweet. Velvety texture, mid-light body.

Pours a deep dark brown with a nice tan head. Grainy aroma with roasted malt and baker’s chocolate notes. The flavor is balanced with burnt sugar, roasted barely, chocolate, and some earthy spiciness. Light body, medium carbonation, and a smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable, easy drinker.
