look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
P: A pitch black abyss mounted by a mountain of frothy cappuccino head. Retention is great and and leaves a thick layer of decadent clouds on top.
S: Decadent aroma with roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso beans, molasses, and oak.
T/M: Taste follows the nose and delivers a nice alcohol sting to cut the sweetness. Bitterness is mild but has nice earthy qualities. Small amount of cherry alcohol lingers in the back of the throat. Full creamy body with a splash of carbonation. Finish is dry with some chalkiness and leaves behind dark cocoa and bitter coffee.
O: This is one of my favorite RIS because it's quite delicious and it's hands down cheaper than anything else. You couldn't ask for a better deal than this. The flavors and aroma speak for themselves and deliver a complex yet elegant beer that is sure to please.
