From a bottle into my Shorts snifter. Pitch black with kaki head and minimal lace. Smell is black licorice and dark chocolate with hints of roasted malts. More bitter than I like my stouts. Rich roasted malt flavor with coco and coffee as well. Would be a 5 for me overall with that flavor profile if the bitterness was dialed back a bit.

Very strong alcohol nose and taste at first, a little more than my rookie self likes. As it warms up however, the "alcoholness" fades (though never disappears) to a much more enjoyable level and the taste is much more balanced. Enjoyed it quite a bit after the alcohol burn faded, not so much 'til then.
