3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at Strange. Very sweet aroma. Lots of Vanilla. Slight rum hints on the back end but not very balanced. Slight bitter malts but the sweetness pours right through. Too sweet. Itís alright but not something to go out of your way to seek out.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear black with a thin foamy light tan head. Sweet aroma of chocolate, candy sugar, and vanilla candy. Flavor is medium-big, with clean notes of vanilla rum, light chocolate, very light oak, roasty dark malts, and some candy sugar. Itís not terribly sweet but Iím not getting much bitterness. Very light tones of coffee on the finish as well. Lighter bodied than I like, but flavorful and clean. And dessert-like.
