The mocha colored head sets up in a thin layer and leaves a nice lace. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate aroma and the fruit background is more of a generic berry fruit than a specific fruit. On the palate it is very fruit-forward and pleasantly bitter at the back. As opposed to some of the higher gravity stoute, this really is like an "imperial" stout. Everything from the roasted flavors to the abv is amped up. I could see this pairing with some bbq or some island jerk style food. All in all, very drinkable big style at a very drinkable price in its class.
