4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample compliments of the bartender at the brewery. Pitch black pour with a tan ring. Huge aroma of bourbon, rum, cocoa powder and black molasses. Big boozy flavor that warms the back of your throat with sweetened rum and bourbon. Wow thats tasty but also big. Definitely a sipper.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of xmas spices, but not rosemary. Med to full bodied. It seemed to change with time. Flavor is xmas spices, but not rosemary; there’s some chocolate and dark malt. It’s a little earthy, has chocolate running thru it, some sort of evergreen - not "super heavy" on any flavor; doesn’t seem heavily hopped. Finishing less than dry. It’s really pretty good; made me think of the annual Anchor product.
