3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours thick jet black with 1-finger tan head and concentric lace rings that stay around forever. Nose is roasty chocolate malt, corn flakes, oaky whisky, cacao, prune. Tastes rich, dry, complex, with a roasty chocolate malt flavor, cacao, blackberry, oaky port, hops, and black cherry notes. Well hidden alcohol. This one is very good, and an example of barrel aging done the correct way, the best beer by Full Pint, and proof that these guys are on their way up the ladder.
12oz capped bottle. No date. No idea what brewery this is. Black body, mediun tan head. Aroma had lots of barrel and spicy rye. Very woody with lots of spicy rye. Woody dry black malts. Lightly evaporating alcohol. Dry. Flavor is similarly dry but not acrid black malts with bitter malts and strong spicy elements. No strong alcohol. Very drying and not big but alcohol present.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin tan ring. Medium carbonation with plenty of lacing. Very pleasant roasted malt aroma. Medium body. Starts out smooth with a roasted flavor followed by some earth and wood notes. Finish is a bit dry and lightly bitter. Hides the alcohol well. OK but not great. vipinvelp (4429) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
Trade w/ Mark. Dark ruby, towards black. Light brown lacing, lasting foam head. Strong roasted aroma, whiskey tones. Nice whiskey notes in taste, light chocolate, bitterness and reasted coffee. Decent drink. (Velp 201606) pajamma (13) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2016
This has been one of my favorites, and definitely the best brew Full Pint makes, IMHO, but it’s different every year. This is the year of chocolate. Seriously, it’s the dominant flavor now. I don’t mind a cocoa-brew now and again, but it’s disappointing that this previously balanced brew has gone so far in one direction.

Bottle. Pours near black with a thick brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malts with a bit of bitter dark grain and a rye whiskey bite supporting. Flavor has a nice combination of roasted malts and rye whiskey with a bitter, dry dark grain backbone. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to Deyholla. Deep brown pour with a prominent creamy tan head. Nose is spicy as rich. Rye and toasty cereal. Some pepper. Dark chocolate. Rich and supple body. Mellow spice and sharp dark chocolate. Wood and Pepper. Light caramel. Nicely executed. Substantial without being flabby. Alright. wchesser (2076) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Dark brown/black with translucent edges. Nice nose of roast malts, smooth whiskey, bakers chocolate. Taste follows with fairly bitter hops. Solid if not that complex. BroadestTom (446) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Aroma rye, woody,
Taste medium sweetness,
Palate medium body, fizzy,
Overall a nice rye whisky beer that I suggest to a friend TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
355 mL bottle from the brewery. Pours dark, dark brown with a small tan head. The head slowly dissipates, but laces nicely. The aroma and flavour are similar, and surprisingly complex, with chocolate, spice, anise, and booze. Good body. Great beer.
