3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a thick black with a tan head that forms large bubbles. Very strong aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla and wood oak, with coffee aroma to finish. The body feels as though it’s overly laced with cocoa. Not an all day beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black with a tan head that is very soon less than a coat. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, vanilla, oak. Medium-bodied, lowish carbonation. Quite chocolaty but not very sweet. Some coffee, red berries, licorice, cinamon and pepper. Lots of vanilla, oaky finish. Nice stuff - complex, well balanced, obvious woody notes that don’t overmatch the beer.
