look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark brown that is very close to black. A creamy, mocha colored head sits on top. Sheets of lacing is left behind.
S: Dark, slightly bitter chocolate and roasted malt appear first in the aroma. A light and delicate hop profile provides a pine-like finish. Mild dark fruits (plums, raisins) come through as well.
T: Similar to the aroma with dark chocolate and roasted/burnt malt. The hop profile makes a similar appearance. More sweet chocolate comes through in the taste along with. A slight bittering effect finishes it off with some mild dark fruit.
M: It has a body that is on the heavier side and a creamy, yet slightly oily feel. A small amount of carbonation lets the flavors coat the palate.
O: This is one delicious RIS. A great example of the style and very easy to drink considering the high ABV. I'll be sure to pick up some more 4 packs while this is still around.
