Pours jet black with a finger of creamy tan head. Decent retention and good lacing.
Big licorice and dark chocolate notes in the aroma. A bit of dark fruit as well.
Lots of dark chocolate flavor up front along with licorice. Similar to the nose. I get a lot of raisin in the back end as well.
Very creamy appropriate carbonation. Mouthfeel really brings everything together.
Very nice. Perfect mouthfeel ramps up all the individual components. I'm sometimes sensetive to licorice flavors in my stouts, but this one has it beautifully integrated.
