Pours black with a chocolate head. Aroma has some roast mixed with molasses, bakers chocolate, bread and a touch of anise. Flavor begins roasty with some molasses, mocha latte comes in towards the middle in transitions into a bakers chocolate with some char. A fuller, heavy mouthfeel. Overall, good beer but I wanted to like this more than I actually did. In the future, I will stick with Tenfidy when in the mood for a big RIS.
