4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
FROM NOTES: August 7, ’12
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.
A: Roasted malts and chocolate notes dominate the aroma initially, but a strong piney, citrus hop profile reveals itself quickly. Smells fantastic.
A: Pours a very dark near-black, with some brownish/ruby highlights and a tan foam head that settles to a thin cap and splotchy lacework.
T: Delicate but successful balance between the hops and malts. Nice and hoppy with a fair amount of sweetness. There is also a strong amount of chocolate and roast with a equally as strong amount of hops.
P: Medium in body and moderate carbonation.
O: I tried to find fault with this beer, but it is excellent. The chocolate, roasty malt notes set it apart from other American Black Ales. If you like Black Ale, you MUST try this, IMO.
22 ounce bottle. Translucent dark brown color. Big frothy tan head with good lacing. Roasted malt aroma hints at molasses, coffee and chocolate tootsie pops. Flavorful roasted maltiness. Chocolate, coffee, pepper and resiny hops. Finish has spicy hops and warming alcohol. Korcz (3388) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 5, 2017

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a huge foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter with anise, chocolate and floral hops. The flavor was leafy floral and fruity hops with roasty malts, anise, perfume and a bit of black food coloring. Long finish. Moderately full bodied.
