Draft poured; nice color with one finger head. Not much to nose; roasted malts for sure, some vanilla. There is a chocolate note with an anise or faint licorice note, alcohol is there. Thick mouth feel.

Look - pitch black with a mocha head and spotty lacing.
Smell - pretty mild, but roasted malts, booze, chocolate, and brown sugar.
Taste - booze is pretty strong, chocolate, roasted malts, and I get a dominant licorice note that lingers, which is really nice.
Feel - medium carbonation, medium body that is slightly sticky, and smooth finish.
Overall, the licorice note is most impressive, but I also like how prominent the booze is, especially since it mixes really well with the rich stout characteristics you expect.

Great in appearance, lacking in nose. Taste profile is rich with coffee and chocolate, but the alcohol certainly shows through. If the alcohol was managed a bit more, I think this would be 4.0+.

Had on-tap at the Burial Beer Co taproom. Served in a snifter.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch dark tan head that's short-lived before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and trace amounts of wispy surface foam.

S- Full-on dark roasted malt brings notes of chocolate and vanilla. Slight booze fume.

T- Lovely dark chocolate notes rush in with some bitter coffee to round it out. Slight metallic aftertaste is the only thing keeping it from perfection. Bitter hop aftertaste.

M- Quite thick and a bit sharp from the hops. Medium carbonation and a full body.

O- Another winning stout from the folks at Burial. They definitely do the darker beers best.
