4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Near-black pour with large, tight, lacing head. Roasty aromas pair with some really nice, subtle, noble hop smells. Rich, roasty, and slightly bitter and spicy. Creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. An excellent chocolaty finish.

Draft at the brewery, 11/21/2015. Dark malts and a bit of smoke on the aroma. Tastes similar with a clean, mild finish. Bready notes as well. Light-medium body. Solid.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Roasty, malty, slightly tart.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Sour, subtle cocoa, malty, dry.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sour finish.
O- Pretty sure this one was slightly infected because the sourness came certainly unexpected. However, it wasn’t a bad sour, it actually was fair. Not good, but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
December 22nd, 2012 - Now here’s a beer worth the brewery visit by itself, and GABF judges agree. Dark and black on the body, and ringed with a halo of cream colored foam on top, there’s not much special happening just with looks. But a curious nose can immediately recognize that something good is lurking in that glass. Smoked peat, barbecue, and pulled pork blend to form a savory, salivary-inducing aroma. The taste is a bit stranger, somewhat carbonated and a thinner palate that seems at odds with the flavors, but the tastes are all there, borrowed from the aroma, and filled with the same meaty, meal-like tastes that make this stand out from the other Wynkoop tasters in line.

Dark malt, slight roast aroma. Very light bodied and smooth across the tongue. Moderate roast taste that turns bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium brown, thin head, toasty aroma, a bit thin, touch of fruit. Ok, maybe a bit thin, crackery, dry finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer poors black, with deep ruby color when held to the light. Nice tan head and good clarity. Aroma is roasty with floral, earthy hops. No off flavors and low esters. Beer has a nice smooth roast, light sweetness, and non overpowering hop bitterness. Creamy palate and VERY smooth. Overall great beer. I’ll definately get this again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can courtesy of theothermatt. Pours a very dark brown. Small wispy beige head, minimally lasting. Aroma is malty, dry roasty, toasty, light smokiness.. Flavor is malty, dry roasty, toasty, chocolate, light to moderate smokiness, some dry earthiness, light sweetness. Body is bigger end of light. Not too exciting, but s solid, well-made beer.
