Poured from a bottle into a chalice.
A= Thin dark creamy head dissipated to a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Viscous. Alchohol and legs slide down the sides when swirled. The body is very dark, opaque, and deep red on the edges when held up to the light.
S= Tangy dried fruit. Moderate to strong alchohol smell. Roasted toasty caramel or malt backing. Very simple stout.
T= Very bitter and tangy. Very little fruit. Burnt dark chocolate aftertaste. Drier than expected. Again, pretty simple stout.
M= Full bodied. Warm alchohol feel overall.
D= Stronger than expected, but pleasant overall.
The bottle suggests to let it age. I may have jumped the gun on opening this one the same day I bought it. I will definitely buy an other and let it age a while, then reevaluate.
