The beer pours dark copper, medium-dark brown in color. There is a short and thin head of light tan. The aroma is toasted, roasted, nutty, with a tang of dark plums. The taste is very dark toasted and roasted, giving a note akin to light peat smoke, in which the dark plum is present, but tends to get lost. The finish is dry and moderately bitter with a metallic tang. It seems like an off-note, but as I drink it may just be a smokey tang, and it fits better. The beer drinks easy with tingling carbonation.
