Pours deep dark red, almost black color with medium smooth foamy head. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, mild dark berries and cocoa. Flavour of chocolate, dark toasted malts, dark berry notes and hints of vanilla. Smooth creamy palate, a bit too watery though.
Deep black pour. The nose is full of molasses and cocoa. Light chocolatey character with a touch of acidity and a bit of light roast. Simple brew but a well-constructed dry stout.
