3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 On tap at Stogies and Stouts and FBG Fest 2010. I really enjoyed this beer. It pours a nice dark brown/ black with an off-white head. Nose is earth, coffee, roast, slight sweetness, and malt. Flavor is similar with a medium body and lingering roast and coffee. I really liked this beer both times.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep dark with ruby edges and thin tan head. The aroma is kind of roasty to burnt with malt sweetness and a light level of black strap molasses around the edges. The taste brings up malt sweetness, dark roasted malts and a bit of burnt malts that heads into sort of an ashy sense by midway. The sweetness and the fairly thin body maintain all the way through into the finish picking up a sense of earthiness as well.
