Bottle sampled in line waiting for DLD to fire up. Pretty tasty overall. I honestly thought I got a touch of bitterness from the burnt malt, baking chocolate and cold coffee notes. Everything after that was sweetness.

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for sharing this one. Cheers, Matt! Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Nose is licorice, earth, roasted malts, and dark chocolate. Flavor is similar- earthy licorice and unsweet chocolate with big roasty bitterness. Medium to full in body and interesting overall.

Black with a small off-white head. Aroma of licorice and dark chocolate, with soy sauce and ashy notes. Sweetish but well balanced flavour of licorice and roasted malt, with a slightly ashy finish.
