3.8/5  rDev -10.4%

750 ml corked and caged bottle courtesy of and shared with beastmaster. Pours pitch black with a massive creamy dark brown head. Aroma of sweet dark fruits, smokey roast, anise/black licorice, some strong chocolate coming through, char maybe from barrels. Smells pretty rich. Flavor is sweet and smokey molasses, chocolate, oak, booze, raisins. Medium plus plus body, medium to low carbonation, and very smooth. Warming. Very sticky here. Sort of like smoked chocolate covered licorice sticks. Jury is still out but a nice dessert in small quantities. Drinkability on the low side but overall nice.

Appearance: Black with a dark brown head

Smell: Boozey with chocolate/fruit/sweet and a hint of oak.

Taste- Smooth, boozy woody and some liquorice. Roasted malt shows through.

Mouthfeel: Bubbly, smooth finish.

Overall: Tasty, lots of different flavors going on. Booze doesn't overwhelm despite being pronounced in the nose. Sipping it definitely gives a warming sensation.

4.05/5  rDev -4.5%

Pours a deep black with a robust 1-2 finger head. Smell is sweet, with an alcohol punch to it. Caught hints of vanilla, black licorice, and oak. Taste was complex, with a sweet licorice up front and a hint of dark chocolate on the finish. Excellent mouthfeel, substantial and creamy. Overall this was an interesting beer but it was a bit too sweet for my tastes.
