Poured from the bottle into a snifter. A nice solid dark brown color on pour, good chocolate/tan colored bubbles giving a decent lacing. Very dark dark chestnut/walnut like in color. Pretty good looking.
Bouquet is surprisingly small, but also not with much heat which is nice. Malty, yeast like and molasses.
On the taste faint anisette, but really a giant alcohol bomb that overpowers everything. Lots of heat... kind of disappointing, missing complexity, more interesting notes, and character.
I'll pass on this, I'd rather have Mikkeller Black, or Dogfish Head World Wide Stout.
