From the nitro-tap to a 12oz. chalice at Whole Foods.
A - Dark coffee brown body with a chocolate milky waterfall pour settling into a creamy head on top.
S - Roasted malt, toffee, semi-sweet chocolate.
T - Delicious. Reminscent of a milk stout, some nuttiness, and that semi-sweet chocolate cuts in at the end.
M - Sweetness from the malt is balanced out by a lightly bitter aftertaste. Very creamy.
O - While not as roaring bold and complex as other RIS ive had, this brew has a nice clarity in development and i enjoy the way the flavors unfold as its consumed. Worth getting excited over.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Pours pitch black with a magnificent head. Lacing and retention are also outstanding. The nose is sweet dark chocolate, roast and hints of dark fruit and smoke. Almost full bodied with a very smooth, almost creamy, texture. Borderline normal carbonation level with just a touch of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is well balanced and a bit complex, but not as complex as FIS or Wulver. It begins with sweet dark chocolate which flows into a roast and hop bitterness. The middle has a molasses note. The finish is smooth and leaves you with an alcoholic burn at the back of the throat that lingers quite long. Less hops would allow the dark fruit flavor to materialize and add to complexity.
