3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. Brewed 6-7-06. Bottled 2-5-07. Black pour with appealing dark brown, frothy head, mostly diminishing. The aroma has lots of dark, semi-sweet chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, licorice and raspberry. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter and then shows some fruity, cherry tartness. Dry, too. Enough bitter/tartness to mute the sweet chocolate. Medium bdoy wtih a watery texture, but turns slightly chalky — perhaps a characteristic of its age. Lively carbonation. This beer is like a liquid raspberrry-coffee truffle. Very enjoyable. Nicely crafted.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
<i>750ml bottle - bottled 02/2007:</> Deep black pour with two finger mocha colored head that settles into a ring. The aroma is filled with deep notes of sweet chocolate and roasted coffee beans. Thick body is filled with mostly roast and brownie batter, with a heavy blanket of alcohol. Finishes chalky and boozy with a soft touch of licorice. Very solid example, but probably moving past its prime. Drink now.

Pours a black velvet with a diminishing brown head. Lots of roasted malt in the aroma, coffee, soya and dark chocolate. The flavour starts out sweet with a tingling sensation of hops underneath. Then liquorice enters and the finishes with a presence of alcohol.
The moutfeel is somewhat weak and watery.

Thank you Hyde for bringing. Very good roast aroma. A dark thick chocolate pour. A whote head with lots of bubbles. Thick and lacey down thye glass. A porter’s imitation of an imperial stout. Roasted malt. Above average mouthfeel. Some sips, at the end of the bottle, contained some sourness. Recommended.
