4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I feel a little busted, this beer will likely kill any bugs that might have invaded my body... pure medicine.. pours very very dark brown, settles black with a large very smooth brown head.Aroma of hard roasted malts, faint dusty note, faint citrussy note, woody notes, sort of closed in on itself. complex, but not powerfull enough.Flavor is wood, rum, raisins, roasted malts, brown sugar, slighlty tart notes from the wood, great roasted malty bitterness into the aftertaste, palate is very smooth. Flavor is also closed in on itself, but very complex, and it unfolds if You give it time. A great sipper. Some of the taste notes might lend a little from a real heavyweight quad.

Extreme dark brown verging on black the mocha head soon thins to absolutely nothing.

The alcohol is very well disguised and integrated into the beer.
Full bodied, a little soft carbonation with an espresso finish. Very smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Pours midnight black with a mid-sized, light brown head. Fantastic retention. The nose offers charred wood and acrid espresso grounds with whispers of cayenne and chili peppers. Full-bodied and slick with medium carbonation. The flavor suggests mild acidity, heavily roasted black and chocolate malt sweetness and carbonaceous bitterness. Burnt, bitter, lightly tangy finish.
