2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sean - thanks! Pours dark but slightly transparent held to the light with only a ring of tan foam for a head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, slight ash, and a bit of an underlying gum note which I do not care for. Taste is minimal roast, slight chocolate, light and generic sweet malt, and some more of the gum off-flavor. There is some rye spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is watery. I was really excited about this beer and it was a let down all the way around.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 9/22/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown as a part of a Yazoo mixed 12 pack. Pours a nearly black dark brown with a thick light tan head that slowly recedes to thin, uneven lace. The nose is full of dark and creamy milk chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, and just a very light hint of spices that I associate with rye malt. The flavor is the same as the nose with the creamy milk chocolate, dark chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, rye spices, along with just a hint of vanilla. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and light vanilla finish.
