Thank the nitro for this smooth, velvety beer. Full, dark flavor with a perfectly creamy head, this is one of my favorite beers.

Pours almost jet black, with the slightest dark brown hue. The head rises quickly, frothing into a dark tan. The aromas are overwhelming in a great way: cocoa, roasted malts, and coffee come through the strongest. The malts smoothly hit the palate first, followed by the balanced hops and malts. An oaky finish has a tinge of a tobacco taste, followed briefly by notes of espresso and dark chocolate. Truly an exceptional beer! Although it sounds counter intuitive with the coffee/espresso flavors, this is a great bedtime brew. The best RIS out there, IMHO.
