4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, earthy dark chocolate, some chocolate brownie and then a light amount of molasses. The taste delivers rich malt deepened dark roasted malts mixed with dark chocolate goodness and then getting into some vanilla bean and spicy black strap molasses. Wow! This is dynamite dark roasted goodness. Great stuff.

650 ml bottle shared from Beer&Deli. Excellent black colour with a nice brown head. The aromas were nice with hints of coffee at first and maybe some chocolate as the beer got warmer. The taste was not so good. The alcohol was overwhelming everything else. Only warmer could you understand some coffee and roasted notes. The body was nice and so was carbonation. A dissapointment, despite al the good words i have heard!!
