Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with no head. Aroma of ethanol, anise and chocolate is quiet unique. Taste is dominated by overpowering alcohol and ethanol notes with some ash, anise, chocolate and residual sugar with dry raisin notes. Body is full with oily texture and low carbonation. Interesting experiment but alcohol is somewhat overwhelming.

Black with tan head.

Strong and thick. Roasted with chocolate. Belgian yeast. Bourbon and oak.

Full bodied. Warm but not too boozy.

A very interesting beer that was better than expected.
