look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Very nice deep black with a prominent mocha colored head. Sticky lacing left behind with good head retention. It settles to a nice film and perks back up with a quick swirl of the glass.

S: Bitter chocolate and coffee dominate the nose that's followed by a soft undertone of sweet molasses.

T: Big roasted coffee with a touch of chocolate and a pleasant bitterness.

M: Full bodied, barely adequate carbonation, and a nice slickness left behind.

D: A very easy drinking RIS. The ABV dampens the sessionability of the brew but a couple glasses wouldn't be a chore.
