3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Springslicker: Pours an opaque black with a thin covering of tan head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate and a touch of caramel with some roasty coffee notes. Body starts a little thinner but has a nice balance between the sweet caramel and chocolate malts and the bitter roasted malt along with a touch of bittering hops. Finishes smooth and enjoyable. I think this would make a great session beer. Thanks Jay!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A black beer with a slight brown shine, underneath a brown head. The aroma is very light with hints of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with light notes of both roasted malt and chocolate, leading to an end with a dry chocolate note. The body is a bit thin inspite of the 5.7% ABV.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark, reddish-brown body with no head. It looks more like cola in the glass than a beer. The aroma is pretty pungent and unpleasant. It is thick with musty malts, and maybe some cocoa in there too. This has a strange, sticky, maple syrup flavor and a sticky mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from ross - pours a very dark brown with no head to speak of - spent coffee grounds and burnt grains in the aroma, along with some earthy/woody notes and some caramel/toffee - lactose is very apparent, but a little too much is used to try and balance the roasted grains, making the beer a little cloying - thin mouthfeel - tastes like old coffee with too much sugar in it - not all that good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown bordering on black. Small tan head that recedes very quickly. The aroma is roasted malts and coffee. The taste is bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and tasty sweetness. It’s a bit on the sweet side, but it mostly works. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, mouthfeel is thin and a little watery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, via acertain. Pours a clear very dark brown body under a one finger brown head that faded to a thin film. Aroma is very roasty with a nice lactose sweetness. Lighter notes of anise, chocolate, and caramel. Flavor is nicely roasty up front that fades to a lightly bitter lactose laced finish. A little char and chalk late in the finish also. Mouthfeel is fairly thin and watery in texture but the carbonation was soft and pleasant. Overall, fairly decent, but nothing that will blow you away.
