Pours deep black with reddish hues. Tan head and lacing.
Currents and roasted malts in the nose. Some toffee hints.
Smooth with some warming from the 7.5% alcohol. Noticeable bitterness that blends well with a healthy dose of roasted malts and what seems a dark caramel note. Some prune and currents come through. Chewy malt character and a bigger than average malt bill becomes noticeable.
Very dry finish. The finishes with some acrid notes and a spicy noble bitterness that lingers along with that dark caramel note. This example seems to set the bar for foreign extra stout.
