Medium to big light brown head settles into a nice lacing above a clear super dark brown to black colored beer.

Heavy dark roasted malts with black licorice and light dark chocolates aroma with a very light dark fruits, such as apricots, coming through as well.

Very dark chocolates, light black licorice, heavily roasted dark malts almost entirely drowned out the dark fruits in the taste of this stout.

A dry aftertaste with some of the heavy roasted taste lingering with this full bodied beer.

A dryish tasting, rich and worthy drink.

a thick black pour with 3 fingers of frothy brown head leaving behind ridiculous amounts of lacing. head dissipated slowly. smells of red wine, vanilla, oak, toasted grains, cocoa. the flavor is pretty much exactly like the smell. a nice bitter on the finish. medium body, silky smooth mouthfeel like that of a dry irish stout, moderate carbonation.

a nice stout, better fresh than with a few months age on it. got more wine out of the first few cans. can't wait for the next ska seasonal stout!
