Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma has soft dark fruits of fig and plum with a bit of roastiness And faint leather. The flavor has similar fruity notes up front before roasty malts give way to notes of cocoa and mild earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, earthy/leathery finish. Tasty!
