I came across a 7oz bottle of this in Brookline, NH and it was the last one on the shelf. I was not too psyched that it was such a small bottle, but I bought it because I have never seen it before. I poured it into a small glass and it looked like a thick coca cola with a light brown head. The scent is overwhelmed with malts, molasses, and coffee notes. The flavor reflects the aroma with an emphasis on sweet molasses, chocolate, and hop bitterness. There is also a bit of a light smokey flavor. At 11% ABV, the alcohol makes its self known. The mouthfeel is a full body, creamy texture. I would never want to session this beer, but if you have never tried it and like stouts, definitely buy this. Very good RIS by Rogue and if I find this again, I would love another one. Would go well with a chocolaty dessert!
