Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Thanks, Colin (I think). Holy smokes. The head on this beer is enormous and fills almost the whole glass. Looks like there might be some beer underneath... Smokey, roasty, and a bit ashy. Maybe some metallic qualities as well. Flavor is fairly bitter and the smoke and roast really dominate. Some molasses, licorice, and chewing tobacco. Wasn’t a big fan of this. The overcarbonation is not helping either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle to taster. Not sure how this is a RIS at 7%, but phuck it. Looks solid; a translucent dark cola with ample fizzy beige head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and toast. Tastes like it smells both some odd bitterness alongside a bit of anise. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied. Underwhelming.
