A: Black body. Big, dense beige head. Great lacing.
S: Buttery chocolate.
T: It's a richer version of Guinness with quite a bit extra. Fairly sweet, very buttery, and plenty of chocolate. It's slightly rummy, slightly muddy, and has some bonfire smokiness. In the aftertaste I get some citrus on top of all that chocolate. As it approaches room temperature there's a pronounced fishy flavour, weirdly. It also gets more buttery.
M: Lively mouthfeel but smooth. Not sticky at all.
O: Great. I needs me some oysters.
