3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 291 poured into snifter. Smells of sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee. Tastes very similarly. Sweet on the tongue with a milk chocolate taste accompanied with the caramel and toffee. Kind of a flat, weak body. Not very complex. Would’ve liked a more bitter dark chocolate and coffee. Slightly disappointed, will have to check back again in a little while.

Bottle shared by Brian. I think it was numbered to 700 bottle or something. Pours sticky brown with light head. Notes are very, sticky with syrup, cocoa, molasses, coffee, and roasted grain rounding out the nose and flavor. Tacky, fuller body. Warming in chest. Pretty solid RIS

Nitro during the first anniversary party. Black head, large khaki head, modest lacing. Roast, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, some earthy hops, light booze, and some dark fruits. Medium to full bodied, creamy carbonation, lingering, warming finish.
