Pours black as a pirate heart with a fathoms-deep creamy tan head. Soapy lace.
Scent is strong coffee, cocoa, black licorice, charcoal. A leafy hop note.
Taste is dark roast and bitter chocolate with a touch of mocha and milk chocolate. A hint of black licorice; very subtle. Bold roasted and charred flavors. Earthy and spicy hops and a solid hop bitterness on the finish. Just a touch of warming.
Mouth is massive, soft and voluptuous with an oily feel.
Superb drinkability especially considering the high ABV.
A behemoth RIS worthy of the Sierra Nevada name.
