3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle … Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The aroma is a menacing marriage of dark rye malt, leather, earthy burnt hops, charcoal smoke and light maple. Full-bodied and fatty with tingly carbonation. The flavor is burnt, spicy and very bitter – mostly rye, black malts and charcoal. Lengthy, charred, bitter finish. Having seen Amon Amarth perform live a couple times, I really wanted to love this beer, but only liked it a little. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
651mL thanks to tastybeer. The pour is a dark brown to near black with a towering coffee brown head. Nice retention and large webby lace. Nose out of the bottle is fruity melons, kumquat, tropical fruits, with savory meat and cocoa like a very serious Black IPA. Taste is richer, bitter, fruity, melon heavy, spicy, mild pepper, lots of body. Palate is rich, clean, full. Feels like a spot on heavy Black IPA. Very nice- more like a spicier and melon heavy version of Stone Sublimely Self Righteous. Very good stuff.
