Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, cherries, hints of bretta. Taste is initial coffee and chocolate followed by a long berry tart finish with slightly roasty notes. Medium to full bodied and smooth with average carbonation. Good for the style but not a fan of the style. bytemesis (9606) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 8, 2017
Bottle thanks to Andrew for sharing! Pours clear mahogany, small beige head, minimal lacing. Aroma is roast with a hint of varnish and light bourbon. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, just a hint of tartness. Medium body. Not terrible. Dogbrick (14386) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2017
Pours black with a thick tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of oaky bourbon, malt, dark fruit and vanilla. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky vanilla, roast malt, bourbon and black cherry. The finish is oaky and fruity with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around. dwyerpg (6550) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 7, 2016
This was nice. The sourness is there but not crazy pronounced. Otherwise helps to hide the strength a bit. zvikar (6609) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 5, 2016
