Bottle from Tipples. Pours pitch black with a massive dark brown head that goes up 3/4 of the glass. The head turns more creamy and khaki colored as it dissipates. Big sweet and roasty aroma, definite bitter roast on the smell, some brown sugar and chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. Big sweet malts up front that fades into a super smokey roasty flavor that envelopes the palate. Lots of dark sugars and a hint of chocolate, but mainly roasty malts all over. Thinner than expected, a medium mouthfeel with low carbonation. This came off on the cloying side somehow behind the roast, and a bit alcoholic. Meh.

A: Thick black with no light coming through the glass. Medium thick tan head.

S: Sweet sweet chocolate, raisins, and booze.

T: Super sweet sugary chocolate, prunes, raisins, licorice candy, cherry syrup, booze, coffee bean, espresso. The flavor is too sweet and boozy for me, not like a solid tasting stout.

M: Thick and velvet like but not a heavy thick- more so a smooth thickness. Very cloying.

O: A bit of a disappointment due to the extreme sweetness and booze that shines through a little too much. But it's complex in flavor no doubt and the mouth feel is pleasant.
