Bottle at home. WOW!! This is a BIG BEER! Pours jet black, with a rusty brown creamy head. The first thing that hit me on the nose was chocolate. On the tongue, deep dark chocolate and coffee... and even a bit of bitterness.

Pours like liquid tar. Massively thick and with a frothy creamy head. Thick and syrupy with a deep black appearance. Not something you could drink a lot of but feels very special
