Very dark beer, pretty much no light getting through this one. Forms a large tan head that sticks around for a bit, but doesn't leave much lacing.

Smell is a bit subdued, seems to be mainly malt and chocolate. Actually reminds me a bit of the smell of chocolate cake.

Starts out sweet, then a lot of chocolate makes itself known. Quite a bit of fruit, seems to be mainly cherry. Has a fairly strong hop bite at the finish, leaving some lingering bitterness. It's a bit like eating a dark chocolate candy bar with a cherry filling. There is a bit of warming at the finish, but the alcohol is well hidden.

Smooth feel, and a lot of tingling from the carbonation. Bit thin for the style, but not overly so.

Interesting take on a stout, a bit sweeter than most are, not not overly so. I would classify this as a dessert beer, would pair well with something chocolaty. First beer I have tried from this brewery, and this one makes me want to try more from them.

Pours dark with a nice thick head. Taste is smooth sweat and tart. Nice balance of malt and hops with a nice dry finish. Coffee and chocolate linger on the palate.
