4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle, aged for about 1 year, served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours basically black in the glass, covered by a dark tan head that has decent retention. very good lacing.
Aroma: inviting if a bit tame
Flavor: rich and complex, with a very solid base of dark roasted grains. Hints of black coffee, unsweetened chocolate, and dark fruits. Lasting and pleasant aftertaste. Mildly bitter.
O: has all the traits of a fine RIS without any detectable flaws. Well done.

Uma Stout de respeito, apesar do teor alcóolico elevado, é bastante equilibrada, seu tom de chocolate esta de acordo com seu aroma defumado, perfeita para acompanhar um charuto ou cachimbo.

Not really malty. Just herbal bitter and tremendously complex. Salty, with plenty of chocolate, coffee and what must be crude oil. Wow, this is the oiliest beer ever, I feel like Daniel Plainview drinking it. "There it is, that’s a straw, you see? You watching?. And my straw reaches acroooooooss the room, and starts to drink your milkshake... I... drink... your... milkshake!" Now I must find Eli to bash his head.
