4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a black brown with very slight hints of amber, large frothy head that dissipated quickly. Not much lacing to note. Mostly Coffee and chocolate malt in the nose... Little bit of licorice there. Taste is chocolate and licorice up front giving way to a bitter coffee and a little bit of booze. Medium bodied, a little over carbed I thought ... Think it would have been nice as a nitro but still very smooth and drinkable. Overall a great beer

Can from Cornelius. Dark brown body with a thin beige head that fades almost instantly. No lacing. Aroma of paper, onion, fig and first aid kit. Flavour of apple, tangy plum, herbs, liquorice and Coca-Cola. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Unusual, not the nicest...

It seemed a bit thin despite its p0tency. The flav0r had m0re lic0rice/aniseed than dark malt, a light sweetness.. the r0astiness being l0st by the finish. N0t bad.
