2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Very dark pour from tap with a tan head. Overly sweet malts push the hops around and not to good effect. Oddly flat carbonation, interesting appearance does not match the underwhelming taste.
Would I drink again? no.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a small white head. If you’re looking through the beer towards the light you can see some hints of red in this pitch blackness. In aroma mainly roasted malt, some hops and sweetness hints as well. This sweetness is coming from chocolate hint. Sadly taste is a little bit raw. Bitter chocolate and hops and it seems that’s it.
