3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque dark brown-black, with an extremely pillowy tan head. In fact, the frothiness of the head and it’s utter hugeness may be the most prominent aspect of the beer’s appearance. Aroma is mainly of roasted malts, with strong chocolate overtones. The malts completely dominate the beer’s aroma. Taste is of toasted malts, with a chocolate flavor that almost matches the aroma. Some hops are discernible, but they are very much in the background. This beer is very sensitive to temperature, and taste changes as the beer warms a bit--improves. Mouthfeel is just a bit disappointing. The beer pours thick, but it tastes thin. I expected more body.

Aroma of espresso and toasty malt. Sips pretty thin and watery. Taste of bitter chocolate and hops prevail. I wouldn’t seek out again
