3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 On tap. Very dark beer with tan head and lacing. Smells of roasted Malts and coffee. Taste is surprisingly hop forward at first. Ends with lingering malt flavor, and some alcohol burn. Medium body. A decent offering. Pairs well with some hearty meals.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Vintage. Deep opaque black, thin light beige head. Roasty coffee, chocolate aroma. A little undercarbonated, but spot on for the style. Oily, resinous chocolate tones. Smooth vanilla, quite drinkable despite the richness. Clean..for the style. Creamy chocolate milkshake tones, minimal and pleasant wamrth. Nice!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark black with a small tan head. Fairly roasty nose, but with some lactic sourness. Taste starts off with lots of dark roast, charcoal, tar, dark chocolate, and transitions into a real bitter dark roast finish. Lightly lactic and warming on the finish. Pretty flat in the mouth and thick, kind of like a thin milkshake. Pretty straightforward, but just not a style I’ve been digging lately.

Aroma of black malt, chocolate malt, some mocha and floral hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, chocolate and English dark malts, floral hops, a hint of citrus and some light vanilla.
