Pours a black body with a mostly dark fruit, raisin/prune aroma along with roasted malts, touches of sweet malts and bread and booze. A really dry, roasted malt beer with some cracker like dryness that is big and boozy, almost medicinal, with a strong dark fruit flavor (raisins, figs, prunes) and subtle tastes of coffee and dark chocolate sweetness. More of a dry, sipping stout than it has sweetness or balance and finishes dry with a little alcohol heat.
