Short brown head. No light gets through this beautiful beer except a red tint at the very edge.
As I gaze at this brew, bitter smells and coffee permeate inside my nose. It is quite delightful.
I also taste bitter coffee and alcohol as this smooth and almost heavy beer goes down. Medium-level carbonation.
This beer is definitely one of my favorites.

from bottle into tulip

A- pours black (no light coming through) with a two finger cocoa colored head. nice lacing

S- roasted malt, almost a smoked food smell and spicy wood.
complexity changes as it warms. becomes sweeter; syrup

T- smokey malt, caramel, hops, chocolate, and some coffee on the end of the drink

M- medium to thick bodied. very nice feeling

O- this brew is excellent. my first RIS and i enjoyed it very much. comparatively one of the cheaper(price) RIS' that ive seen available also. this is definately worth trying.
