Pours a gorgeous pitch black, with a light caramel head that dissipates with elegance.
A great balance of coffee, darker plums and red cherries, and chocolate arrive at the nose. Sweet chocolate is present as well.
Coffee and Roasted malts come out right away in the taste and ride all the way through. While the fruits and bitter sweet chocolate come on more towards the end. A pleasant bitter coffee after taste rests on the palate.
Not as creamy as I was hoping for, and a little on the over carbonated side for the style.
But all in all, for the price a great go to RIS.
