It has a great cherry undertone to cut the burnt toast of the malt. Great palate and appearance, great depth of flavor. Very well made. elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - JAN 16, 2008

Draft at the brewpub (7.6%). Aroma of dark toasted malt. Color is opaque black with a low tan head. Medium body with very mild carbonation. Quite smooth. The flavor is dark toasted, but not burnt, malt with a small sour undernote. There is bitter, but it is obscured by the toasted character. Very good stout.
