look: 2.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Fairly bland and generic styling. Nothing stands out.

Lots of marshmallow and chocolate.

Not overly anything; very balanced and smooth. Slight english influence. Carbonation is fluid, even, and forward. Sweetness is medium, milky, and crisp. Flavors are bright, sharp, milk chocolate, toffee, and dense molasses.

This is a solid brew!!! I would love to find a trading partner for the Barrel Aged version.

A-Pours extremely close to black. Minimal light retention. Dark brown head rises and grows with a swirl or two. Light lacing.

S-Roasty with noticeable anise and/or black licorice. Some chocolate as well. Not super enamored with the aroma.

T-Flavor also isn't jiving with me all that much. It actually tastes like Fernet to me. More anise than I enjoy. It's got an herbal, cocktail bitter flavor to it. There is also a lot of roastiness, coffee and bitter dark chocolate.

M-Not viscous but the body is relatively full. Noticeable alcohol heat. Bitter finish. Medium carbonation.

O-I'm not really big into anise or black licorice flavors. I did think it was neat that the beer had Fernet-like flavors.

Thanks to acropora for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

2014 vintage. Bottle number 1450.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and slight char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a noticeable hop presence in the taste that I wasn't expecting for the style.
