A - Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin tan head.

S - Light roasted malts and dark chocolate.

T - Toasted malts, coffee, and chocolate upfront. The plum really comes through in the finish producing a good balance of sweet and tart.

M - Medium carbonation with medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

O - This is definetly an interesting beer. Glad I gave it a try, but probably would pass on next time.

Dark brown, nearly black and opaque with a thick beige head that settles slowly. Low aroma of faint raisin and Cabernet, perhaps a touch of Cabernet. Interesting flavor of rich dark malt, darkly toasted, not roasted, with rich dark fruit flavors. Not sweet, but rich and well complemented to the malt. Firm bitterness against the malt, but no hop flavors. Rich and full mouthfeel, good beer.
