3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is fig, deep deep chocolate and mocha. Slight roastiness and rich malts. Taste is similar to aroma with very chewy mouthfeel with chocolate, raisins and molasses dominating the senses. Finishes with slight bitterness and surprisingly almost no liquor snap for a 10% beer. Appearance is jet black with a beige head that retains fairly well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Super dark, inky black & oily pour. Gluggs out slowly, velvety mocha foam on top that skims quickly to a bubbly collar. Aroma of dense fudge brownies, chocolate syrup, figs, a hint of roast, & a little undercurrent of residual sweetness, bordering on cream. More dark chocolate in the aroma, very bittersweet with a balance of roasted malts & some unattenuated sugars. Hint of oxidation, dark fruit, fudge, & a bit of heavily roasted coffee beans that linger on the palate in the aftertaste. Creamy, big-ass mouth feel. Wasn’t expecting much from this, but it’s pretty damn tasty.

"Not HUGE for an RIS, but pretty agressive flavor and aroma. The body is medium for the style, especially. Malted chocolate, dark fruit and a decent amount of bitterness."
