3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
sample by way of superdave70.
pours a fairly dark brown shade of black with a spongy cocoa colored head.
the aroma is heavy on the roast with notes of cocoa, belgian chocolate, faint yeast, caramel and a touch of smoke which is amplified when the beer warms.
the palate is surprisingly NOT as sweet as the aroma lead me to believe but the profile is pretty much the same. it has the addition of some black currants and a mild roasty bitterness on the finish which cleans everything up. it is medium bodied but light on the tongue. it*s soft and restrained enough to make a session of this...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark brown body with a small tan head. Roasty malt and coffee in the aroma. Sweet flavor of caramel, chocolate and coffee. A bit thin on the palate for my tastes, but overall not a bad brew.

Pours a dark brown with a light brown head. Arma of chocolate, dark fruits, and barley. Flavor is barley, malt, and a bit watered down. Lots of roast in this one and reminds me a bit of a moonlit sessions on some ways. Interesting brew, thanks Dave!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle(stout) pours thick black with no light passing through at all, medium dark tan head. Looks great. Aroma is definalty that of a stout, I get dark malt, sweet chocolate, and light carmel. Taste is pretty big, low bitterness, more dark malt, smoke, roasted malt, and oat. Mouth is creamy with low carbonation. The flavors are focused more on grain, so this beer is more one dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is opaque black (flashlight tested), bottle conditioned.
Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate/cocoa), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a light note of anise, hints of cassis and charred wood.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Very enjoyable, though a bit restrained. Tartness is a little strong and not entirely pleasant, but it’s a minor point. Aroma is shy beyond the basic malt character, but it’s nice enough. Probably wouldn’t buy this again, but I drank the whole bottle so that’s saying something.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Crosling, thanks man. Poured a deep brown color with a thick beige, Belgian-esque head that stuck around nicely. Aroma of light chocolate malt, some soft caramel, some cream/lacto, and some dark fruits due to the Belgian yeast character with some light hops. Smooth, moderately sweet entry with some chocolate and a light caramel character that lead into some dark fruits (plum, fig) due to the yeast and a moderate undertone of roasted coffee on the finish. Medium carbonation and moderate bite on the palate. Solid beer for sure.
