Pours a nearly opaque very dark brown with an even, tan head. Head retention is average. Aroma is comprised of prune liquer and Belgian yeast. Flavor is quite similar to Guiness Extra Stout. Prune and coffee liquers are most prominent. Finish is smooth, but abrupt. Decent beer.

334ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.

A - Big, billowy mocha head off the pour. Dark brown-black with a lot of ruby highlights. Head settles nicely.

S - Dark, roasty malt and molasses with some brown sugar sweetness.

T - A lot of roasted malt creating a light bitterness in the aftertaste. A little thin to be honest. Still pretty strong on the molasses, but the brown sugar and dark chocolate sweetness backed off a lot. Fairly easy to drink, but nothing really exceptional here.

M - Pretty smooth, without a ton of carbonation. Body is surprisingly thin and feels a little watered down.

D - Lacks something in the flavor profile. I'm usually not a fan of really bitter flavors, but even this was a little tame for me. A nice drinkable stout, but nothing fantastic.
