look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours black, with a thick bubbly tan head. A small layer of head retains well, leaving relatively nice lacing.

S: Sweet mollasses and slightly nutty roasted malts. Full bodied aroma.

T: Sweet and full flavored, with a bitter coffee-like bite. Finishes dry, with a slight warmth from the alcohol.

M: Medium amount of prickly carbonation, full bodied, slight chewiness.

D: The carbonation and dry finish help balance the full flavors, resulting in nice drinkability (though it is higher ABV at 8%).

A= The can pours a nice black color with a little bit of an amber highlight to it and a nice two finger head rising out of it. The head is a mocha color and makes some nice hissing noises while it sits there with some decent retention as well as a little spotty lacing.

S= Interesting. Smells like a lot of overripe melons and a little sweet maltyness. I don't really smell much roast or coffee to it at all. Smells sort of fruity. Smells exactly like dates! That's it! Dried dates is the smell all the way. Or maybe rasins.

T= Tastes a little more like a beer than a raisin juice. There is a little roastyness to it while not much it is there. The dates and rasins are still there and the most prominant aspect of the beer for sure...

M= Nice coating feel to it but a little too bubbly.

D= Pretty good. After the initial shock of the raisin date juice it is pretty solid. I would but this again sometime just because it's so unique and I've yet to have a beer like it. Who knows I may have a hankerin

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a 330 ml longneck

A: Pours an opaque black with a tight tan head, which leaves nice lacing behind.

S: Smells of rich chocolate malts with some coffee in there as well.

T: Taste is equally chocolaty to the nose reminds me of chocolate icecream. Lingering flavors of coffee.

M: Full smooth mouthfeel.

D: This beer is quite drinkable. The flavors are not too overpowering and they blend well together.
