A: Cola black, thin head, some lace.
S: Mocha, malty.
T: Nothing up front, just a great balance of chocolate malts, coffee, some dark fruit even. Also detect some hoppyness at the back.
M: Medium to slightly heavy. Pleasing.
D: ABV hidden well. Could not tell if it was 6% or 10%. Thats scary. I wouldn't call it a session beer, but, 2 of these slid pretty easy.
Serving type: on-tap

This is a textbook perfect example of a RIS. Dark and beautiful in color, nice beige head, amazing smell, perfect mouthfeel. I loved the coffee notes and the dryness, perfectly hopped with what I assume to be KEG (something english for sure). My only negative is that it was a little boozy for 9%, where I have tasted smoother stouts with a higher ABV. Regardless, that's just a personal preference and this is an absolutely amazing representation of the RIS style.
