Poured a black body with minor head and lace. First thing that hits me in the nose is dark fruits like raisin, figs, and then minor sweet malts like chocolate and something sugary (not going to say candi sugar or caramel...toffee? molasses?) and then balance from some roasted malts and to be honest no alcohol. The lack of alcohol in the nose and also the beer itself is quite a feat considering it's a double digit ABV beer. This beer, for as heavy as it could be and with so much going on, is actually light and easy to drink with a chewy, fuller body that goes down incredibly easy with notes of chocolate and other sweet flavors (again - toffee? molasses?) hints of figs, some roasted malts, good balance and the beer has a good, strong finish without alcohol burn. Just a solid stout.

4.13/5 rDev -4%

12oz bottle into a CS snifter.
A- Charred brown black in color; coffee head that has good retention to minimal lacing with medium legs
S- this brew totally has a Belgian dark fruit/charred fig quality to it. Some like this, some don't. I usually don't, but the taste is not dominated by it.
T- Equal chocolate and molasses to Belgian dark fruit/charred fig to help my palate out. Nice malt backbone. Not as pronounced as some, but good nonetheless.
M- Very smooth here, with perfect amount of carb. Can't complain
O- A very very well done version of a non ba stout. Get some!
