this beer pours a color similar to motor oil. leaves a fingers worth of head, but leaves a ton of lacing.
it has a deep chocolate, malty smell to it. hints of caramel and coffee make their way through
it taste of dark chocolate, "diesel-style, hell no i don't want any sugar or cream" coffee, malt, and vanilla. there burst of hops as well. this brew is good.
mouthfeel is very smooth. not a lot of carbonation in here. just really smooth.
drinkability is pretty decent. i don't think i could make this a session brew. one a night would do me fine. it is pretty heavy, so you might want forget about any type of foods for a little bit after drinking this bad boy. but this beer is really tasty.

Bottle purchased at World Market in Charlotte, NC for $2. No freshness or bottling date on label.
A - Pours very dark, almost black. A fluffy tan head sits for a minute or two before dissipating. Great retention and good lacing. Probably the most carbonated RIS I've ever seen.
S - Bittersweet chocolate, touch of coffee. A hint molasses and black licorice is coming through. A noticeable aroma of alcohol also lingers.
T - Nice blend of all the mentioned aromas. They all blend together in this one beautifully. Dark chocolate maltiness at first, followed by coffee beans and licorice as well. Bittersweet chocolate then fades to a roasted finish. Very nice and well balanced brew.
M - Medium bodied and quite carbonated. I would like it more if it were thicker and the carbonation were toned down a bit. Warming is noticeable in my throat and gut.
O - Tasty, enjoyable beer. I would probably enjoy it more on a chilly winter day, as opposed to an 82º summer afternoon. Not my favorite RIS, but one I'll definitely have again.
