Poured a black body iwith no head or lace to really speak of.
A mostly dark fruit aroma, not what I was expecting, along with roasted malts and hint of sweetness.
A dark fruit taste pervades, like plums, raisins, a little figgy, also some black cherry and there is a light chocolate malt taste in this beer.
Slight roasted malt edge gives beer balance and more of a java than coffee edge in the beer.
Not the most well-crafted stout but it hit the spot.
