Bottle with big thanks to Christos. Medium scale gusher. Black with tan head. Aroma is slightly smokey, vinegary, whisky. Taste of ashy smokey whisky with some vinegary notes and licorice. Tangy. Not sure if it’s as intended but interesting and decent

Bomber shared by Eric, thanks! Gushed a bit on opening. Pours black coffee with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, acetic, cherry. Flavor follows nose. Slight sour cherry probably not intended. Metallic finish. Still, not too shabby.

On tap at RIBCO, pours pitch black, much like the others with a thin light brown head, the aroma is pretty roasty with a lot of dark malt and chocolate, the flavor has a heavy chocolate front end with a lot of roast in the finish, mouthfeel is a tad thinner than I was expecting, booze is still pretty evident, meh.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Sergio's World Beer. The pour is jet black, oily, with no head to be found and no lace. The aroma is heavy on dark fruits and a beautiful light maltiness. The light roast carries through from start to finish. The flavor is much of the same. There is a sweetness to it, followed by the light fruitiness and then it fades out to a nice roast. The mouth feel is extraordinarily thin. There is minimal carbonation and a lingering fruity maltiness going on. Started out well, but disappointing.
