A - Pure black with two fingers of milky tan head, big thick lacing all around the sides.
S - Dark roasted chocolates, hazelnut, a tad skunky, some milk chocolate, sweet roasted malt.
T - Lush creamy milky chocolate tones bitter roasts that make for a nice balance.
M - Velvet creamy milky, amazing.
O - One of the best RIS you can get its super silky smooth full chocolate flavor.

serving type: bottle; poured into snifter

A- Rich dark pour with a one-finger, toffee-colored head that lingers and laces down the glass

A- Sweet, creamy, malty aroma. Deep resin, with subtle leafy/piney notes

F- Fronted with coffee, caramel, and toasted toffee malts; distinct, but not overwhelming, toasty, bitter followthrough

M- Very smooth, liquidy-velvet fullness with just a bit of carbonation. One of the best mouthfeels I've experienced.

O- A sweet and strong blend, that's not over-powering. Well-balanced. An exemplar of RISs.
