3.94/5 rDev +4%
Pours dark black with no head and decent lacing. The smell is solid. Sweet and malty with chocolaty notes to the nose. I found the taste a bit underwhelming. It starts a bit bland and watery but finishes sweet. It tastes very sugary, almost like chocolate milk. The aftertaste is unique-- it's sweet. The booze is almost undetectable which is impressive for an 8.0% ABV. Overall, I wasn't overly impressed. It's a solid beer with a sweet finish but the flavor doesn't blow me away. It's worth a try though.

4.19/5 rDev +10.6%
BBD 9/23/14. Very dark amber pour with a dark ruby cast. Nice head that laces well but diminishes in 3 minutes. Light nose of malt with hints of fig and other dark fruit. Outstanding medium body with a texture that approaches slick. Normal carbonation level. The well balanced and complex flavor profile is a blend of dark fruit that completely masks the 8.0% alcohol, set against a subtle caramel sweetness that is blessed with a touch of smoke. The finish is smooth with a short lived burst of smoke. Glad this outstanding ale is back.

3.18/5 rDev -16.1%
Poured chilled in shaker pint, chez white
A: very dark; huge head; great lacing and excellent carbonation
S: all malt, very light
T: treacle, molasses, brown sugar; no hops, and out of balance; bit of ripe banana. @buzzlitebeer: "platonos maduros 2 weeks old" Well, I'm not so sure, but it does not best exemplify this style.
Not bad overall, but don't rush out to get one.
