3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black with a little tan head. Smell is a whole lot of coffee and a bit of chocolate. Palate is medium bodied though lacks a bit of carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first then gets bitter with lots of roasty flavour, before going into a long lasting bitter aftertaste. Also some good alcohol warmness in the throat.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2017 Pitch black pour with a thin tan head. Notes of roasted coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark cherries, a bit of anise seeds and a bit of booze. Full body, low carbonation and a roasty slightly boozy finish. AleRider78 (1411) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
Pours a thick creamy brownish head and has a dark brown appearance, almost pitch black. Thick patchy lacing. Aromas of chocolate, toffee and light vanilla notes as well as rye and sweet malts. There is a slight alcohol scent as well. Flavours of dark chocolate malts, coffee, nuts. The hops used don’t stick out enough as the malts are too much of a force. Alcohol is fairly strong and noticeable, but quite inoffensive. Nice warming sensation, lively carbonation. Slight astringent mouthfeel as well as creamy and slick. Great taste overall, an abundance of malts well blended. Good stuff and gets better as it warms up. androman (2772) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2017

Had this in a tall boy can with Pete in Grimsby. Great can. Extremely dark with a short lived dark head. Toasted caramel nose. Thick but dry finish in the mouth. Chocolate malt. Delicious.

Can from LCBO. 9.5%. Canned 4 months ago. Very dark, with tan head. Pleasant roasty sweet aroma, flavour roasty and sugary, strong molasses and slight licorice hint. A bit too sweet for my taste. Fine modest carbonation. Body slick and not very heavy. Finishes kinda sticky. Overall rather good, but not too exciting nor much to my preferance. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2017
