Outstanding beer. Poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: a huge thick (2 inches at least) of intense bright brown head. Beer super dark, pitch black.

Smell: chocolate, maybe subtle notes of licorice, not too much to offer here.

Taste: bitter chocolate with sweetness to follow it. Maybe some dark fruits. As the beer returned to room temp, black licorice became much more prominent. Maybe not so complex in flavors, but very rich and decadent.

Mouthfeel: super thick and rich. Knife and fork would be helpful. This is a heavy one.

Overall: outstanding! Surprised this is year-round and not seasonal. It's nice that this solid beer is readily available.
