Pitch black color with creamy, mocha head. Aroma has some acidic malt note and slightly tart fruity notes. Taste starts bitter and fruity up-front, continues with roasted malts and coffee bitterness on the finish. Full bodied, really smooth on the palate. Overall it's a really complex stout, well balanced and easy drinking for its ABV.
