Absolutely gorgeous appearance this has a deep yet bright black body and a creamy dense foam head.

The aroma is lactose-sweetness, with a tinge of boozy sherry, brandy and creamy marshmallow.

This starts sweet and boozy with a cloying liqueur and port like flavor. The further into it I went the lactose-sweetness began to grow and it was only counter balanced with a very port like alcohol. Far too cloying and boozy for me.

The feel is thick and full with a nice creaminess but it's hurt by the strong booze.

I love a stout but this took sweetness and alcohol way too far.

Serving type: on-tap

11 vintage.

Pours jet black with a frothy chocolate head that dissipates into a ring of foam.

Aroma is boozy, with notes of chocolate dominating the underlying roast character.

Flavor is sweeter than expected. Chocolate dominates into the finish, which is slightly charred. Sherry notes add complexity.

Body is very smooth and fairly thick, with minimal carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.

A little overly sweet, but a good nightcap. Like the rich chocolate notes.
