4.05/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is black in appearance, though not as thick and motor-oil-like as some of this style. A small chocolate brown head settles on top but dissipates quickly.

S: Coffee, roasted barley malt and a touch of chocolate. Alcohol is noted as well as it warms.

T: Roasted coffee beans, roasted malt, molasses and generic fruitiness are all there, as well as the alcohol, which acts as a drying agent at the end of the sip. A bit sweeter than your normal RIS/Double Stout, and there's not really much chocolate - though I get a bit of cocoa powder - which is a surprise given the nose. Alcohol heat and drying impression linger in the aftertaste.

M: The feel is interesting - quite fizzy, carbonation-wise, which makes it feel lighter on the palate than would otherwise be expected, but also provides a certain sharpness or bite (most RIS's, in contrast, are more syrupy-thick and smooth). This one is, however, a heavyweight.

O: This is my second time having this beer; I really liked it the first time I had about a 4-5 oz portion. Now that I'm sitting down to review this, however, I'm finding it less impressive. It's good, but doesn't blow me away like a world class big stout.

3.79/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - pours a dark opaque liquid with a thin tan head. Good lacing that sticks to the glass and creates a polka dot picture of tan foam heads.

S - booze with some heavy dark fruit and hints of dark chocolate.

T - there's that booze again! Earthy malts and a small hint of chocolate on hyena finish. Not much else.

M - crispy medium carbonation and a bit thin on the finish.

O - not to shabby.
