look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

2013 bottle poured into a snifter

Pours a super black. A nice 1 inch mocha head when poured. Dissapears to a nice ring around the glass. Leaves great lacing.

Smell is slight coffee with roasted malts. slight smokieness. A great beer I am gathering.

Taste is amazing. Coffee, chocolate, raosted malts maybe even dark fruits. This beer is awesome for the price. Nice taste from start to finish.

Feel is what you would expect from a RIS. Thick with a smooth texture.

Overall this is a great all around beer. Glad I have many more to enjoy over the next several months/years.
