Dark brown, almost black.
Alcohol laced dark chocolate, molasses and raisin nose.
Massive. Explodes with alcohol warmth, molasses and dark chocolate.
Starts sweetly with red berry fruit liqueur notes and quickly turns bitter and alcoholic. Perhaps something of a publicity stunt, this is a challenging experience rather than a cleansing ale, and I’d be hard pushed to finish even half a bottle.
Closure: Crown cap
