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.
