Oh wow, they knocked this one out of the park. Beautiful blend of roast, bourbon, coffee and vanilla. Perfect density and an aftertaste that makees me want more. Please produce greater quantitiy as $20-$30 CDN per bottle is still too steep for this gem.

Pours black with tan head. Strong roasted malt flavor with notes of chocolate and coffee. Nothing stands out and differentiates this beer from other RISs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
