4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours Brown-black with thick, creamy tan head. Aroma: chocolate, roasted malt, and a touch of citrus. Taste: chocolate, roasted malt, piney bitterness with a hint of citrus and coffee. A rather strong malty backbone, but balanced by the hop bitterness.Overall, an interesting combination of flavors that most likely wouldn’t always work well together, but here they combine nicely. A solid, complex brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a high quality beer with a real kick to it. The aroma consists of heavy coffee/chocolate. Taste is heavy on roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, salty licorice and some ash. Combined they give a long lasting aftertaste. There’s also some bitterness in the finish. A good brew!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s a little strong for my taste, but you can tell it’s quality brewed and Victory knows their stuff. I’d try it again in hopes that I can handle it, but maybe that’s why I shouldn’t have had it in the first place.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, 355ml, aged 6yrs from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. This is big on darkly roasted malts, rich and smooth with ageing. There is a port wine note from the alcohol, there is a rich fruitiness given up by the malts. Lasting palate. Pretty special.
