I was pleasantly surprised by this RIS. It is currently one of my favorites. In fact, I prefer it to Founders Imperial Stout and Ten Fidy. I particularly like the dark fruit. I've stocked up and look forward to seeing how it ages.

Poured into a goblet type glass. Pours like motor oil; dark and heavy with limited carbonation. Roasty and Rich, with a velvety smooth mouthfeel. Boozy undertones but readily drinkable for a 10%. Aged two years makes it devine.

3.81/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle dated 123112, into a modified tulip glass.
A - No light gets though, dark and deep. Gentle parade of fine carbonation can be coaxed into a thin cap. Laced with the finest of threads is the only trace remaining.
S - Bakers chocolate, dried tobacco, plums, hint of charred wood, and mint. Leaves me a little intrigued.
T - Surprisingly smokey, that chocolate from the nose is buried way behind, dark fruits,
and an earthy roasted malt body. There is a piney bitterness that exits leaving that lonely bakers for dessert.
M - Round and smooth to begin, the fringes of the palate, take the heat at mid sip, Mouth is fully coated at the exit, leaving a strong earthy lingers. At this point the 10% ABV is quite present with that alcohol cooking off.
O - This Stout is well constructed, a little confounding. A limited offering that could
be touched up some. I am glad to have some left.

Cheers all
