A- Pours a midnight black with a thin mocha head. Minimal lacing is left behind.

S- Lots of dark chocolate upfront, followed by licorice, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, and carmelized raisins.

T- Follows with aroma with big semi-sweet chocolate, dark fruits including raisins and black cherry, licorice, roasted malt, and vanilla.

M- Low to medium carbonation and a full, smooth body. No sign of the high abv.

O- A great ris with minimal heat and plenty of complex flavors. One of my favorites from Stone.
