Drank from my Mane liquor tulip

A - Pours a thick Ebony oily colour with a tanned head that laces a reduces.

S - Sweet cocoa, malts, coconut, toffee. Excellent

T - Up front some nice cocoa, dark malts and molasses follow and the finish is heavy toffee. No sign of the booze.

M - Full body and perhaps a touch over carbonated.

O - A very enjoyable stout. The toffee is very recognisable.
