Cool ass 12 oz bottle heavy too poured into nonic pint

A: Deep darkness like a new moon sky almost no head at all I was worried it was flat

S: licorice some chocolate

T: Very nice licorice taste sweet not overly complex it's a nice taste but straight forward with it licorice and some chocolate

M: very soft carbonation medium to heavy coating on the tongue

O: This isn't a super complex beer but it crushes it as a stout it's not hot it's sweet it's thick it's got a slight licorice and chocolate taste it's just well done. If you see it buy it you will be pleased don't go out of your way though it's just a great beer but you aren't going to be like this is life changing.
