3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/11/13. 22oz bottle from Five Points. Deep brown pour, almost black, with a nice khaki head that sticks. Toasty aroma, malty, biscuit and caramel, with a bit of roast, coffee, and chocolate. Nice flavor, smooth maltiness that is more chocolate forward than the aroma led on, a hint of fruitiness, plenty of roast, some ash, lingering biscuit and chocolate. Tasty!

Bottle at home. Pours jet black with a huge bubbly beige head. Seems highly carbonated. The aroma is light plastic like with notes of hard roasted malt and light chocolate. The flavour is mostly roasted with some fruity and chocolate notes. Quite roasted finish.
