4/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Utterly black, with a small dark tan head, no apparent carbonation, lots of broken lace.
Aroma: Bitter coffee and chocolate aroma, with some toffee notes as well.
Taste: Bitter chocolate and coffee utterly dominate the taste from start to finish, a lingering note of bitter chocolate carries on well past the end of the taste.
Mouth feel: Smooth and extremely full, with a hint of carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: Simply excellent, though with its high ABV, to be consumed slowly and with due respect.
Thanks to my friend and fellow BA HardTarget for generously sharing this great beer.

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.
