Dark brown in color. opaque in appearance. Think light porter roastiness and belgian yeast. Easy drinking. Maybe a hint of tartness. Hint of dark chocolate bitterness on the end.

Comes across more like a dubbel or BSDA than a stout, from the yeast character. Unremarkable example of any of the styles at any rate.
