Bottle @ THT January. Pours a pitch black beer with a very small brown head on top. Aroma of coffee, licorice, some roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavor has the coffee and dark chocolate returning in a big way, very strong and powerful bitter taste. Balance is a bit off, but the coffee and chocolate are so good on their own that this is a very nice. Full flavored and deep. Good stuff!
