Oliphant Ancient Bone Saber of Zumakalis Foreign Export Stout

Oliphant Brewing Ancient Bone Saber of Zumakalis. Has something to do with some video game or comic book or anime, or something. I forgot. Foreign Export Stout. I love an
FES. 8.5% ABV.

Fully dark brown, nearly black coloring, some crimson highlights at the edges, under a rich, but short lived cocoa-tinted head.

Aroma is redolent of dark fruits, raisins and figs, plus coffee, cocoa, some molasses, a little spice.

In the mouth: smoothness, full-bodied, altogether malt-tastic. Perfect balance. Moderate hopping keeps time with the sweet malt. Succulent. Low carbonation, but that's what I'm liking about it. Tasty. The remains of this crowler went down nice and smooth, I'll tell you that much. A big beer that goes down easy.

It's a Plutonian thing. You probably wouldn't understand...
