12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a very dark brown/black color with a half finger head and some lacing.

S: Very sweet smelling roasted malts, espresso, dark chocolate, and some fruit as well.

T: Lots of roasted malts, espresso, dark chocolate, and some hops. Nice bitterness for a stout. The alcohol is well hidden.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

O: This is a very solid RIS. I'll gladly drink it anytime.

2013 bottle ,no bottle date but I purchased it in aug 2013 so I assume it's a 2013 bottle.

A: Pours a dark brown, with a nice 2 finger brown khaki color head. When pouring I notice a reddish hue to the beer.

S: This bottle has a bit of oxidation on it which I tend to be fairly sensitive to unfortunately. Getting some nice chocolate and coffee bitterness to it as well.

T: Getting a lot of coffee and chocolate. Roasty notes coming from this beer. Also getting a nutty taste to it as well.

M: This is where the beer falls apart to me. I'm a stickler for mouthfeel and this beer fails here. Now Stone is reengineering their Ruinination for the modern pallate and I think North Coast needs to do this with old raspy. The BA version is thin as shit and this is right there with it.

O: Decent babies first RIS, though the mouthfeel is severely lacking. 10 yrs ago I'm sure this was a beast, but now it has the mouthfeel of coca cola. Had the BA version on tap and holy shit is that thin as hell, this isn't much different but least its affordable. Decent but nothing to write home about in my opinion.
