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

Poured a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours jet black with a small light brown head.
Smells very nice, getting nice sweet malts, coffee aromas coming through from roasted barley, also some dark chocolate.
Taste very similar to smell. At first I'm getting sweet dark malts, and chocolate flavors, then the some bitterness from the roasted barley. This is how RIS's are supposed to taste this beer sets the standard for a "regular" RIS.
Feels nice and smooth and creamy with just the right amount of carbonation. Goes down nice and easy without a hint of alcohol.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pours pitch black with a one finger light tan head. The head stays around for quite some time and leaves some lacing down the glass. Smells faintly of coffee, roasted malts, smells pretty good. Taste is good. Roasted malts hit first followed by chocolate and ends with a mellow coffee taste and an aftertaste of coffee. For a decently high ABV beer this one hides the alcohol pretty good. Easily drinkable. A really great RIS, not the best I've had but I still enjoy it a lot.
