Black. There were a few dark brown bubbles ringing the glass, but that's it. Roasted grain aroma with lots of berries and booze, coffee, nutty, a bit woody. Berry flavour was pronounced throughout - impressive that they were able to get that much character into an already big beer. Roast and booze, wood, caramel sweetness, moderate bitterness. Sweet berry finish with lingering tannins and alcohol warmth. Full bodied with low carbonation, moderate astringency. Quite tasty. The berry and barrel character worked well with the stout.
