Poured into a tulip.
Absorbing black without a hint of light coming through. A fairly hard pour results in just a bit of head — a very thin layer of light tan. Larger bubbles remain at the edges.
Bright chocolate aroma. High-percentage dark chocolate and a touch of spicy anise rounded out by prunes, raisins and maybe a touch of vanilla. Almost brandy-like.
Strange blend of flavors. Tobacco, chocolate syrup, plum sauce, a soft touch of booze. Very fruity. The swallow delivers even more big, tangy fruits. Figs, plums, etc. Cocoa and toast lingers after the finish. A very smooth blend.
Thick! The body’s creamy and full, packed with chocolate syrup. Carbonation is almost not there — just a slight tongue-numbing sensation. A slight hint of booze comes through the nose, but overall the alcohol is almost completely hidden. Like drinking a milkshake.
Very tasty. I enjoy the stouts that trend toward the dark fruits I expect from a good RIS. Thick, creamy and pretty delicious. I'll be seeking out the other Idjits on the strength of this one's recommendation.

I assume this is a 2012 release.
Pour is a black, cocoa head. When the glass is moved the carbonation keeps the retention alive.
Rich and sweet. Chocolate and coffee. Very bright.
Lots of roasted malt and espresso bean. Crazy dark chocolate bitterness. Slight citrus hop finish.
Not too thick but thick enough to have some chew but easy to drink. Expressive carbonation.
Really good, very bright, great stout.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours nearly all black with some brown at the edges when held up to a light with minimal head. Some alcohol legs and spots of lace when swirled.
Nose is milk chocolate, graham cracker, a touch of smokiness, and dark fruit. A little bit of licorice and soy sauce in there as well. A bit all over the place aroma wise.
Taking a sip, a bit of chocolate and caramel biscuit, smoked malt, soy sauce, card board. Flavors are all there but very muddled.
Medium full body with mild carbonation.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.
A classic dark walnut brown body, with not much head happening barely manages a finger. The head is a real nice light tan with a great whipped and creamy appearance and manages a nice collar and puck.
Nose is very impressive and varied. Hidden red dark fruit, giving to cream and chewy sweet grain. Dense milk chocolate and whipped mocha. Some spice, kind of clove also. Real varied and impressive.
Taste is real nice with a great creamy mouthfeel. The feel on this brew goes all over, dense and rich with a still light body, whipped up big. Light charring on the finish, soft malt presence and a lingering roast presence.
I can't get over how light but really creamy this is. No heat, nothing overpowering, greatly balanced real nice.

Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black in the glass. One finger light brown head with good retention and lacing. Nice strong aroma of toasted and charred malt, chocolate, mocha coffee, dark dried fruit, hint of vanilla. Flavor follows aroma with dark toasted, smoky malt, chocolate, lighter touches of dried fruit and molasses. Finishes somewhat thinner and drier with a long, residual hop bitterness. Nice creamy, medium body. A nicely made, full flavored (and very aromatic) RIS. The smokiness of the malt was deftly balanced. I liked this a lot.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a few tan bubbles on the surface that faded away, leaving only a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong sweet aromas of dark, roasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a slight amount of sweetness along with flavors of roasted malts.
M: It feels full-bodied, rich and somewhat smooth on the palate with a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Considering its strength, the beer is rather easy to drink because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

Look: Deep purple with lighter purple hues at the top and bottom. No head
Smell: Amazing coffee aroma which is accompanied by some oak vanilla and chocolate
Taste: Kind of a funky roasted malt taste that transitions into a backend that is loaded with chocolate and just a ever so slight hint of vanilla
Mouthfeel: Very full bodied with a velvety smoothness to it and low carbonation
Overall: Very pleased with this beer. The only thing for me that doesn't make this an excellent beer is that initial funk on the flavor. Apart from that this beer is damn near as good as a RIS gets

A beer for MNF.
A - I love the 25 cl bottles because you can just dump them super aggressively into the glass. Black beer, viscous, with a brown head that bubbled up and faded to an impressively tight ring.
S - Lots of roast, some sweet molasses, dark chocolate, dry toast. There is a bit more alcohol burn in this than I was expecting.
T - Lots of char and roast, with some sweetness from a bit of yeast, chocolate, and molasses.
M - Carbonation was prickley, fuller bodied, kind of a burnt/dry finish.
O - Nice beer, actually about the right size for one person. Lots of roast and char, but it's got good flavor and I drank it happily.

On tap into a goblet at The Birch in Norfolk.
A: Poured with an immaculate amount of dark mocha colored head that stuck around seemingly forever. Was pitch black in the body. Just gorgeous
S: Simply put, I was not even attempting to smell it and the smell made its way to my nose while I was waiting for the head to dissipate. Smells like milk chocolate, hazelnuts, sweet dark fruits.
T: Tastes like it smells. More dark chocolate but absolutely no bite or heat to it at all. Also has a fresh, sweet nut flavor in the after taste to accent the chocolate flavors. Little plum and maple.
M: Full bodied, creamy. The head was extremely creamy and for a 9.5% beer, this complimented it very well.
O: I loved this RIS, it was easy drinking and at 9.5% ABV, I could still probably drink 2-3 of these in a sitting. It is definately a sipper but doesnt fill you up and it hides the alcohol better than any stout I've ever tasted to include FIS, FBS, Stone RIS and the likes. Highyl recommended (on tap at least...cant speak for bottles)
