A - Poured out an opaque, black as night color with a small, light brown, foamy head. It left soapy sheets of lace like legs on a red wine.
S - It smelled of sweet chocolate, roasted malt, floral notes and sweet fruits.
T - It tasted like candy sugar, licorice, roasted malt and strong chocolate and caramel flavors. A solid bitter hoppy kick balanced out the sweetness.
M - It was soft, smooth and still sharp with a warming alcohol presence. A medium-bodied beer.
D - This is a truly great brew. One of the most balanced RIS's I've ever had.
