11.2 FL OZ bottle
Served in a snifter

It pours like used motor oil into my glass. It is jet black and topped with a little of an inch of mocha head that leaves little lacing.

Dark roasted aromas arise from my glass. Anise, dark fruit, dark chocolate, and coffee are in the mix.

The taste has elements of all the aforementioned smells. The anise is less is the taste. The coffee and chocolate along with some roasted malt are the primary flavors. There is more bitterness in this than a standard stout.

Thick, viscous, chewy mouthfeel

This beer drinks like a hoppy stout. The mouthfeel is amazing. The taste and smell have some anise which is not a favorite of mine. Other than that a pretty good beer.

From notes on 5/29. Didn’t really care for the smell. To me, it smelled like dirt. Really through my experience off. Had a nice thick black body. Awesome coffee taste. The smell though, I just couldn’t get past it.

I think that I set my expectations too high on this stout. A good brew but not tops on my list.
