330ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Almost entirely black body with just a tiny hint of red. Thick, frothy light brown head with excellent retention.
Extremely roasted aroma. Bitter chocolate and coffee noticeable through the head which does just not want to go away. Smokey and with a touch of molasses and dark fruit.
Roasted and dark bread flavors dominate. Very smokey but just a hint of sweetness. Slight touches of chocolate in the background.
Medium-bodied with a medium level of carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Sheer amounts or roasted/smokiness make me unlikely to try to session this (that and the ABV), but I am definitely enjoying this one before bed.
Okay, so I went into this with quite a bias. I hate Guinness, with a passion. But this... this was actually very enjoyable. Definitely recommend.
