Black with modest, dissipating, tan head and light lacing (ba) / Big nose of chocolate, coconut, coffee, bourbon barrel / Full body, creamy, sweet but fine balance, with long finish / Intense, inky flavors of chocolate, roast coffee, molasses, licorice, bourbon barrel, caramel, tobacco / Somewhat overpowering, as these can be, but a treat to try in small quantities /

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and dark brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is a mélange of fudge, toasted coconut, blackstrap molasses, vanilla and pouch tobacco. Full-bodied, velvety and chewy with soft carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of big, bad, hearty roastiness and pouch tobacco sweetness. Notes of bourbon and fudge mingle nicely in both the flavor and the finish. Big THANKS to ctipping for providing this world class bottle of brew!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee, sweet cocoa malts, lots of bourbon, intensely boozy, pretty tasty. It’s really tough to drink though, and it doesn’t really offer some extremely novel take on the style. I’d rather have countless other RIS, since I struggled to finish 6 oz. of this one and have downed entire bottles of Speedway on my own.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cocoa powder, toasted malt, coffee beans, dark fruit, tobacco, and wood. Potent bittersweet taste, astringent, and a bit vinous. Smooth, oily, full bodied, and rich.
