A. Aggressive poor 1 ¾ inch tan head that dissipates to ½ inch. Good carbonation. Color is brownish/black, very little light getting through.
S. Roasted malt, coffee, cola.
T. Smooth creamy, chocolate, coffee, figs, raisins, sweet. After taste is a little soy sauce and coffee.
M. Light syrup.
O. One of the best stouts I’ve ever had. I didn’t believe the hype at first but yes it is that good. Get some NOW. Taste like a RIS little brother. Light buzz for 5.8%. If you want to drink a beer that taste of an imperial stout but you don’t want to get drunk. This is for you.

Americans often over-rate their own beer, this is not a case of that. Best I've had so far from Sierra Nevada. Perfectly balanced stout, however not overly ambitious which is the only drawback. Definitely a stellar beer.

10/30/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Quite smooth & sort of creamy. Very little bitterness. Worth a try but no asterisks.
