4.43/5  rDev +19.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Much like the Olde 22 but much stronger.

Appearance: Pours think and is black in color. Don't let this fool you though, its not as thick as one may think.

Smell: The smell of hops is increased over the similar Olde 22, with smells of darck roasted nuts and maybe some fruits.

Taste: Very strong, not for the light of heart. Strong taste of mault and some chocolate, and maybe some burnt fruits.

Mouth feel: Thick, but drinkable. Similar to a Irish Stout.

Drinkabilty: If you're into strong beers, its very filling and goes great with a lunch, and even a session beer. Bought a half gallon to take home and drink, which I am doing now.

3.43/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: a deep almost black brown. opaque with a small tannish head that sticks around

Smell: roasted malts, with some hoppiness on the backside

Taste: roasted malts followed up by some bitter hops, some occasional hints of chocolate and less often fruit

Mouthfeel: creamy but dry and bitter. very dry

Overall: I was not a huge fan of this one. I'd prefer more of a fruitiness and less of the stout darkness. drinks exactly like and irish dry stout
