Sampled this beer from the bottle. Upon pouring I instantly noticed it's ruby brown color with a generous rich brown foam head. The aroma displayed characteristics of rich chocolate and some dried fruit undertones. It had a sweet chocolate flavor with a mild presence on the tongue. It finished with some enjoyable sourness. This is a very tasty treat that I recommend trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thick creamy light brown head stayed well on a very dark brown, slightly effervescent body. Huge aroma - malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, coffee & spirit. Smooth to the fore, thick & creamy on the tongue with a nice tickle on the back. Sweet on the front with raisins, brown sugar, malt & caramel followed by a bitter, tangy back of dried fruit, coffee & hints of citrus.
