Aroma is reminiscent of a red wine, strong (but not overpowering) notes of raspberry. Color is as black as sludge. I placed a flashlight against the side of the glass and could only see a faint glow through the glass. The color is a bit intimidating, but the first sip is rewarding. Hints of raspberry, semi-sweet dark chocolate, very faint plum, and raisin combine to form a beautiful combination of flavors. Finish is quite robust but smooth. Very rich, very flavorful. Absolutely no head.

On tap at Specific Gravity. Had to let the pour sit for awhile to warm as it should be enjoyed at around 50 degrees F. Very dark pour with thin head. More transparent than a Stout but dark in color like one. Nose is very complex and wonderful with hints of wine, light vanilla, and to many others to list. Taste is even more complex. I suggest if you ever have the chance to put your hands on this one that you jump at the oppurtunity.
