look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A - Almost jet black with slight ruby tinges coming through at the edges of the glass. Nice 2 fingers of thick creamy tan head.

S - Roasted malts, bitter sweet chocolate, some dark fruits(rasins and plums) a little bit of coffee, and slight alcohol notes. Very nice.

T - Taste is very similar to the nose but I detect more of the bitersweet chocolate and dark fruit in the taste than the nose. Bitter coffee finish on this one.

M - Very nice and creamy on the heavy side. Medium carbonation. So smooth.

O - For the price this is an awesome RIS. It is a sipper though, its so heavy and syrupy yet so good. I think this may become a regular in my fridge.Gets better when it approaches room tempurature.
