Poured into glass, and it produced a quarter inch beige head. The color is a very dark brown, leaning towards black.
The aroma is woody, with dark fruits, and spices.
Low carbonation, and a thick mouth feel.
Taste is a mix of coffee, oak, plums?, raisins?, and is moderately hopped. The bitterness is well balance with the light sweetness. Their is a short lived bitter after taste.
Fairly easy drinking for a RIS, but at 9% ABV, one should use caution.
