3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dissapointing a bit. Pour is opaque red/brown with little to no head. Nutty and a bit watery with notes of coffee, fruit cake, and leaves. Did not particularly care for this.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep jet black with a medium tan head. Caramel, roast, vanilla, wood, and Maggi (Swiss cooking sauce…little like soy sauce, but with an herbal component). Little thin, but piles of roast. Finishes with some long smooth roast fueled bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light off-white head atop a close to black pour. Fair roastiness is the first noticeable feature and its comes across rather ashey. Almost meaty flavour profile, filling. Powdered chocolate, fresh blackberries, soft citrusy hops (lemon). medium bodied, quite drinkable. Smooth palate, but biting carbonation. This brewer clearly has mastered the art of balance, but I did not appreciate too much the combination of roast and lemon - an old nemesis of mine.
