3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at brewpub-=pours almost pitch black with a small tan head around the rim of the glass-dark chocolate, anise and lite alcohol dominate the nose. lots chocolate and alcohol on the flavors with a hint of smoke. very big body and the alcohol is very apparent here. decent brew, but i would not say its world class. Needs to be a bit more balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Aroma: light caramels and booze. Flavor: lots of alcohol in this. Fresh melony esters. Chocolate late in the finish-pretty good, but seems too hersheys like at times. Sweet. Mouthfeel: I’d like the carbonation a tad lower. Can definitely feel the alcohol on the tongue. Thick. Too sticky.
