Black color with small beige head. Aroma of cream, chocolate, nuts, cappuccino, peat, liquorice. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet a bit savory. Perfect balance. Full body, velvety texture, flat carbonation. One of the best beers I have had, if not the best. Closest to perfection.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with a moka head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of peat, spices, herbs and really different overall. Taste is really sweet, almost cloying. Lots of honey and roasted malt and some chocolate is what I could taste. Full bodied and a little heavy. Mouthfeel is smooth, though. Overall a fun one, makes me wonder how the original ("real") recipe tasted (pretty sure it wasn’t as nice as this bottle!).

pours clear dark brown with a nice beige head, good retention and lacing. mint, burnt caramel, soy sauce, roastiness, bitter chocolate, cloying molasses and dark sugars, smoke, hickory. moderate to low carbonation, medium to full body - heavy stuff, slightly earthy and grassy-minty finish. complex but oh-so-not-overwhelmed by this sweet and umami-ed brew.
