3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, nutty notes, roast and biscuit. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with near flat carbonation. Decent beer and I’m digging the cocoa but nothing exciting. Would be something I’d quite happily session down the pub though if it wasn’t a normally inaccessible TG..

22oz bottle at a tasting. Clear brown pour with weak foam. Nose is sweet cherry Twizzlers, cookie. Taste is thinner bodied than expected given the sweet aroma, metallic bite. Not really my thing.

The bottle gushed a bit and even the slowest pours filed the glass with foam. Other than that there was no sign of infection. Good robust flavors of roasted chocolate and deep grape fruitiness. Frothy body. Ok. Bomber bottle.

Bomber. Red brown with a medium sized tan head. Semisweet chocolate, malty, root beer, dried leaves and a little earthy. Good balance of light sweetness with a matched earthy bitterness. Medium body with a light oily, fizzy feel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had at the source and received in a pint glass.
3.75 A: Deep dark murky brown color. Poured up to nearly the top of the glass, but a short creamy tan head is present.
4.5 S: Big toastiness and nuttiness - simply super potent. Hints of cocoa powder that dries it up a bit. Semi-dry overall. A truly giant nose.
4.0 T: Toasty and nutty but just not as powerful as the nose. Approaching moderate bitterness. Cocoa powder, woodiness, and semi-dry overall.
3.5 M: Medium body. Moderate carbonation which is surprisingly bity with a light-moderate creaminess.
4.0 D: Another winner. I wish they had more non-hop forward beers because this one was great.
