Pours black with the darkest head I've ever seen.
Nose shows rich chocolate/cocoa and roasted malt with a hint of booze and smoke alongside a sweet chocolate liqueur note.
More dark chocolate as a flavour before transitioning to heavy dry roast and cocoa alongside some solvent-like booze.
Nice creamy carbonation.
