A-pours a silky ink black with just the fainest dark brown highlights. This also has one of the darkest heads I have ever seen, a dark mocha that leaves a bit of lace on top.
S-rich roasted malt, roasted black coffee, molasses, and dark chocolate
T-taste matches the smell well but is kicked up a notch in all the categories. Rich roasted malts, espresso, molasses, and dark chocolate. Really excellent.
M-full body, milk shake quality, perfect amount of carbonation, leaves a dry roasted feeling
This might be the best RIS I have had, huge flavors, full body, and while the alcohol leaves a slight warming there was no burning sensation. Amazing.

From a bottle into a pint glass. Had this one about a month. I wanted to wait until I could enjoy it for a while after the kids went to bed. Here goes
A: absolutely pitch black. A thin layer if dark brown head that sticks around for a while. Thin lace as the foam recedes.
S. An absolutely mouth watering combo of dark chocolate, malts, and raisins. I could literally smell this beer all day. I can't wait to get that first sip.
T: I had this beer at 59 degrees out of my beer cellar. The tast follows the smell exactly. The best I can say is Hershey's dark chocolate and an oatmeal raisin cookie all in one!
M: full flavor coats the mouth completely but still really easy drinking!
O: the only markdown I gave this beer was in appearance because I like I bit more head on my beer. Honestly after drinking it I feel guilty for even that small markdown! Bottom line...buy this beer!
