Pouring slappy yet viscous, the body is jet black and is topped by an intensely stark mocha fizz that settles to a thin ring.

Bourbon and dark oak have a substantial presence on the nose, but play nicely with creamy, rich and luscious melted dark chocolate and vanilla bean brownie batter that's like it's been dunked into Port.

Taste is raisiny brownie, fudge and bourbon maple syrup. All kinds of charred oak and crispy brownie crust come out in the exhale. As it warms, a Tootsie Roll aftertaste emerges. Don't get it twisted though, this isn't solely a candy beer or pastry Stout, it's still the very complex and sophisticated Stout that regular ANTEAD was, but with an insanely beneficial added layer from the roasted cacao.

The silky medium body has a crisp but faint fizz and a woody, cotton dry finish.
