Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Oily black pour, soft tan foam that settles quickly. Aroma with light roasted malt, ash, licorice, burnt brown sugar, & a hint of papery oxidation. Charcoal on the palate with some ashy, burnt malts & light smoke. Anise, licorice, a touch of very bitter chocolate, modest oxidation lingering in the finish.

With Zach, pours a pitch black pour with a nice Java head. Nose is rich chocolate malt, and licorice. Taste is sweet rich chocolate, and burnt coffee. Finish is smooth and velvety, and ends on the same delicious tasting notes, with a moderately long finish. Quaff Score 8 / 10

22oz bottle. Poured like motor oil with an averaged sized brown head. Roasty, chocolate, vanilla, a bit smoky and I’m getting the spicy rye/rye bread in the aromas. Alcohol content hidden. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 18, 2015
