3.03/5  rDev -21.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Thick, black, used motor oil in appearance and viscosity. Dark mahogany head that surfaced after a very turbulent pour. The head was completely gone after a very short period of time. Even before the first sip. I couldn't coax even the tiniest of heads out of the beer even after swirling the glass around a bit in my hand.

Very smokey in the fore front of the nose with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla lingering in the background.

Very woody, earthy, smokey taste and a super thick mouthfeel to match.

This beer is ok. I wouldn't seek it out but would drink another if the opportunity presented itself.

3.43/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a light tan head.
Nose shows cocoa and roasted malt with a little sweet liquorice in the background.
More roasted malt as a flavours but not particularly complex. Again a hint of liquorice shows as well as some faint coffee but it's pretty subtle.
Could use more carbonation.
