500ml bottle into an English pint glass.
Pours nearly pitch black with a half finger light tan head that settles into a thin cap. Just a few random spots of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Aroma is quite pleasant with some nice dark fruity aromas along with a moderate dose of smoke. Some light cocoa and light roasted malt as well.
The flavor, unfortunately, has a quick shot of metal right off the bat which is quite unappealing. Following this is a milk chocolate sweetness along with some cherries and figs. Light fruit wood smoke is quite nice along with some light roasted coffee. Mouthfeel is silky smoothe with a moderate amoung of sweetness leading to a slightly bitter finish.
Overall, an interesting stout that is unlike many of the others out there. Not extremely interesting but one to pick up if you are in search of something unique and different.
