750 ml bottle. Beautiful black poor, tan head slowly fades, rings of lace. Coffee, licorice, funky aroma, tastes just like it smells, a little sharp in the finish, boozy. Thin to medium slippery feel.

Bottle poured into a snifter; modest carbonation with small head. Chocolate and malts are evident to the nose with a softened sweet smell. Chocolate and subtle sweetness on palate- medium balance and the acidity is softened. Well done
