Small sample from bottle @ Zeebra II. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has hard roasted malts, tar, licorice and alcohol. Taste has dark chocolate, hard roasted malts, coffee, tar, some alcohol burn and a medium bitter finish. Full body, soft carbo. Nice stuff, but a whole bottle would be too much.

I appreciate this experiment, but this is just too much. The alcohol burns in your mouth and stomach and makes it hard to detect the other tastes.
