Blackish pour. Toast and a fair mount of prune and a hint of berry mixed with chocolate amd light toast. Medium brew and has a real cranberry kick that I just can’t shake. Fruity but stout and smooth. I like this one.

A solid, balanced and smooth drinking stout. The nose has some unusual elements for a stout - rich dark fruit, a gummy sweetness and classic malt. Tastes include roasted malt, caramel, a hint of molasses, faint coffee and chocolate, a metallic cleaness and a smooth creaminess. Well balanced and easy to drink.
