This intense beer pours black - jet black, and is topped by a thick, dense, creamy, tan coloured head that really lasts, it just sits there as you work your way through.
A powerful aroma hits you the second you uncap the bottle, pouring the beer and the air fills with intense liquorice aromas.
Lift the glass and get a lung full....WOW! Instantly you get powerful liquorice coupled with bitter dark cocoa, then you get a toffee like sweetness - great start.
Taste follows that fantastic aroma, initially you get sweet caramel then roasted malts, dark sweet fruits (plums and figs) sprinkled with a delicate spice note before finishing with a coffee bean like bitterness.
