tulip. this ones quite dark. about a finger of dark head, leaves a nice film on top once it settles. the nose packs an abundance of dark fruits, and a lot of booze. a bit of chocolate, very sweet, like chocolate covered raisins I suppose. Ashy and boozy are the two main adjectives I'd use

ive had this beer on tap before- this is the first time out of the bottle. the color is black- opaque when held up to light. the smell is full of dark malt and chocolate. the flavor is blackened dark chocolate malt, black coffee and alcohol, not surprising with the 10.2% abv. this is a super solid stout.
