A - Pours basically black. 1 finger head with pretty good retention. Good lacing.
S - Excellent roast, not over done or burnt smelling. Chocolate and coffee dominate with a vanilla underneath. Also a somewhat earthy smell, hard to describe, but very clean.
T - Goes exactly with the smell. Perfect roast on the malts lets the chocolate and coffee notes shine. Also somewhat of a creamy smoothness. Very clean finish and no burnt flavors at all.
M - Perfect for the style. Low carbonation and heavy, goes well with the creaminess.
O - Excellent stout. Something I would definitely try again.

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.
