A: Black with a mocha head.

S: Malt, orange, citrus peels, plum and raisin in the nose.

T: Lemon, orange, lime, kiwi, grapefruit but not super hoppy. Some fig, plum, malt and raisin are stronger than the citrus and kiwi.

M: Full bodied and smoothish.

O: A great example of the style. I'd recommend it at least once.

Bottle from Proof Bottle Shop. Thick and pitch black with tan head that persisted fairly well. Collar hung until the end. Lots of dark malt, some sour cherry, some coffee, and a touch of grassy funk in the aroma. Taste is nearly identical to the smell, with a bit more of the sour cherry and grassy funk being prominent. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel. Very full bodied. Great after taste and a Guinness like mouthfeel.
