look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A- pours pitch black with a one-finger dark tan creamy head, great retention, thick lace all the way down

S- light toasted oak character, chocolate malt, sweet dark fruit with just a whiff of vanilla

T- sweet dark fruits, light oak character gives a bit of vanilla flavor, dark chocolate malt. Finishes with a powdery candy-like sweetness, reminiscent of the stick from 'Fun Dip.' There's a bit if dryness in the finish with a bit more oak on the end

M- light-medium body, low carbonation, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, a bit thin for the style

O- nice mix of dark fruit and chocolate flavors with just a bit of oak nuttiness

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

A - near black with a solid finger of mocha colored head, decent retention fantastic lacing.

S - lots of sweet dark fruits (cherry and raisin), oaty, sweet caramel, slight roasted coffee.

T - mildly bitter chocolate, sweet dark fruits, oatmeal, transitions into a slight bitter/easy burn. Sweet mouth watering aftertaste

M - decently carbonated, light bodied but still rather smooth. Very drinkable

O - pretty good, great drinkability however the dark fruits are a little too dominant and there seems to be a bit of an artificial sugary flavor for sure
