Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Guinness stout glass.
Appearance: Dark and black with a slight amount of light coming through the bottom. Big lightly tan head with good retention and lacing.
Smell: A big aroma of dark roasted malts dominate with hints of coffee and chocolate. Also has a strong hint of plums. Maybe a little bit of hops. Smells pretty sweet overall.
Taste: Strong taste of dark roasted malts and caramel is followed by chocolate, coffee, and some dark fruit. Finishes with a decent amount of hop bitterness. Slightly dry in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a medium to high carbonation. Very creamy and smooth.
Overall: A pretty good tasting classic stout. On the sweeter side but pretty good.
Serving type: bottle
