look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours black as night with a 2 finger tan head creating beautiful patterns of lacing.

S - Big chocolate, gently roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, raisins, chocolate covered dates, walnuts, pine infused alcohol.

T - Robust espresso and rich chocolate burst onto the palate, heavily roasted black malt, green hops come through rather quickly, vanilla bean, dark plums, roasted walnuts. Green pine hits hard at the end and finishes long with roast and pine resin.

M - Heavy body, very smooth feel, low carbonation.

Big robust flavors with a big hop bite at the end. The roasted malt comes through more in the flavor than the nose. Nice nutty yeast. This basically has everything you want in a RIS. This beer seems better every time I drink it it.
