I think this is what I had based on alcohol. Bottle looks a bit different. A nice sweet stout. a bit of licorice, oily mouthfeel. Coffee at the backend, and gritty. Very good.

pours into a deep dark black with a small caramel colored head. the first hit of the aroma i found it hard to place at first but i get a subtle hint of some sweet fudge. flavor is smooth and not too overpowered without losing any of the pleasant taste i get a creamy taste of the familiar smell. a very pleasant drink. glad to finally get a proper taste after pouring it for many customers and it has not disappointed.
