Reviewed from a 2012 bottle. Poured into a glass.
A - Pours a deep brown with ruby highlights. Appears black as motor oil once in the glass. Thin mocha head with no lace.
S - Strong roasted malts, chocolate, and espresso.
T - Roasted malt and bitter chocolate coat the palate. A slight hop bitterness in the finish. The alcohol is very well hidden.
M - Heavy bodied, thick and very smooth. Low carbonation.
O - Just like most of what Sierra Nevada does, they have set a standard for the style. When I think of an RIS, this is exactly what I expect it to look, smell, and taste like. Just a perfect example of the style.
