The bottle poured out a dark brown body with a three finger high light brown head. The head was a thick foam that eventually dissipated into a thick and sticky lace that smothered the glass. The initial aromas were of dark fruits, roast, malts and a huge helping of prunes. Frankly, the prunes are quite overwhelmingly.The initial flavors were of prunes, bitter unsweetened chocolate and roasted barley. The beer had a full body with light carbonation.
Overall this beer is pretty spot on for the style, however I am not a huge fan of the prunes and after a while they seemed to get a bit tedious. Interesting beer, but not quite in my alley for a stout.
