3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thought I’d revisit this one when I saw it on the shelf again. Remember not thinking much first go round. Black pour with a quickly fading, fizzy beige head. Aroma was big time vanilla and dark roasted malt, melted candy bar, dark cocoa. Flavors were slightly sweet with the vanilla pushing forward, hints of cocoa, roast, astringent malty finish. Mouthfeel could use some work as it was a touch thin and fizzy for the style. Overall nothing impressive here, dig the aroma but doesn’t live up to it.

12oz bottle thanks to rich. Pours out black topped with a small tan head. Nose is holy vanilla cocoa roast malts and a nice sweetness. Taste is more vanilla cocoa roast malts and some sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours black with a ring of tan head. Nose is boozy whiskey, with chocolate, coffee grounds, and lots of vanilla. Taste is vanilla-forward, with lots of chocolate, a little coffee, and a sweet, lightly roasty finish. Oily, thick body with a biting carbonation. Decent, but not really my thing.

On tap in a World of Beer. Thin dark body. Kind of boozy smelling. Interesting. Tastes like marshmallows. Was hoping for more, but it was pretty good.

Very nice! Definitely getting chocolate. Marshmallows perhaps not as much, but this is a good one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours very dark brown with a slight dark tan head that left rapidly. Aroma of sugar, chocolate and graham flour. Almost full bodied, but not quite. Flavor is chocolate, graham flour and vanilla. Should say smooth burnt malt, but it’s kind of hidden. Tasty, and the heat isn’t obnoxious. Still, and I don’t recall putting this in a rating before, it, to me, is a bit overrated. More "body" might help. Or not.
