Poured from a bottle into my sifter...

A: Thick, used, dirty, motor oil, pure sludge.
S: Chocolate and molasses with some smoke
T: Absolutely exceptional, light smoke, lots of molasses and chocolate, coffee, roasted grains, absolutely everything a big stout should taste like.
M: Thick and syrupy, slides down your throat and fills you up.
D: This is easily, the most drinkable RIS I've ever had. It has all the complexity (and more), flavor, and character of bigger RIS, but lacks the alcohol burn. This is a truly exceptional stout, and you stout lovers owe it to yourselves to try one. I consider myself very fortunate to have access to this stuff by the case.

My favorite and goto.

Pour is pitch black as you expect. Half inch head subsides into a thin off white ring. I couldn't see the carbonation level if I had to.

Smell is amazing. Nice balance of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. A subtle sweetness lingers in.

The taste is perfect. I haven't had it in a few months, but I pick up a woody bitterness that just adds to the coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Bitter, and loaded with coffee. I could go on for days, because each drink produces subtly different flavors and nuances.

Body is heavy and slick. Some hop bitterness just makes it more bitter.

God damn I love this beer.
