11.2 oz bottle. This one pops with a massive hiss. Upon pouring, my glass is filled with a tower of light and airy dark tan head that sits a good 3 fingers over a sparse it of matte black liquid. The billowing head falls quickly to a finger over top of the brew. There is a strong carbonation boiling out of the brew, so I am expecting this one to lack that bubble when I take a drink. I would like the head to have been a little less prominent. The aroma is awesome. There is a massive molasses sweetness with some spicy licorice spice that gives me the impression of star anise. The combination of these two aromas makes me think of molasses cookies. I'm still waiting for the head to fall back down after my second pour brought the foam back up to 2 fingers over the brew. My first sip delivers a massive flavor. Tons of very deep dark fleshy fig marianted in molasses with anise. There is a prevalent dark candied-sugar sweetness that finds the sides of my tongue as I swallow the brew, and it clings well there into the finish, rounding the spicyness of the licorice and molasses flavors. Everything here blends so well together, the boldness of the flavor does not come across as cloying or over-spiced at all. Mouthfeel is moderate to thick with a light carbination remaining even after the explosive head on the pour. This one is sublime. It deliveers over all aspects of the brew. The only hint of the ABV is found on a light warming in my stomach and a good relaxation that is settling in. This one should be a sipper, but the flavors keep taunting me to come back and drink it more quickly.
