12 oz bottle (received from fellow BA GoOSU) and poured into nonic glass. No bottled-on or freshness dating found on bottle.

A: Jet black pour with minimal ruby highlights when held up to light. Very aggressive pour yielded only a quarter inch of tan foam which dissipated quickly leaving just a covering with some lacing down the sides.

S: Chocolate is the main theme here with a smoky, roasty, maltiness. Very nice.

T: On the first sip I'm surprised at a hoppy bitterness that I didn't expect (or is it from the grain). There's an almost 'medicinal' quality to the taste that isn't very pleasant. I can't find the chocolate and malt that was in the aroma. It's just the bitterness that is taking over.

M: Some reviewers mention that this is medium to full-bodied. I must have the wrong vintage because this appears to be very thin. I'll say 'thin to medium'-bodied. Minimal carbonation, which is fine, but I like these RIS's a little thicker.

D: At 9.2% this is going down very smoothly. This goes down like a porter as opposed to a thick stout.

I've had this beer on 2 separate occasions. A few years back I thought it was one of the best stouts I'd ever had. Then I had it last year and thought it was 'meh'. And now, it's still in the 'meh' category. Maybe this beer has lost a step since it's glory days a few years back.
