Pours a very dark brown colour; tan head, bit listless. Lacing also a bit listless. Looks heavy, and a bit unnuanced somehow.
Smells hugely, hugely chocolatey. In the best possible way. Smells sweet, but rich and cocoa-heavy, with tinges around the edge of sugary rum, spiced brandy, currants, raisins, cinnamon. This is fucking magic in a glass. The best aroma I can remember getting from a beer in years.
Taste doesn't quite reach the heights of the smell, but then what could? Rich, sticky and chocolatey there, with notes of brandied cherries, currants, port wine and just rich gooey chocolate fondant. Boozey upfront, has a mild cocoa-tinged roasted bitterness late, but just huge, rich, sticky chocolatey stout. Fantastic.
Bit sharp from alcohol upfront, but it doesn't last throughout. Gets more mellow just due to sheer density late. Very pleasant.
If there's ever been chocolate in a glass, this beer is it. But it's a rich, complex, interesting chocolate with loads of character. It would rate off the scale as a chocolate. In beer form it's phenomenal.
