The 2013 classic release, poured into a large wine glass.
A: Motor oil black with a caramel colored head that thins down to a creamy film. There is a lasting caramel colored head and lacing that sticks around.
S: Dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, vanilla and caramelied brown sugar.
T. Dark chocolate, caramel, non dairy creamer, caramelized brown sugar and espresso. The after taste is a blend of all of the above.
M: It's creamy but not very thick, just enough carbonation to give a chocolate soda feel. There's not very much of an alcohol bite.
O: This is my current favorite stout, with the exception of Peche Mortel. It's is a very unique R.I.S. it doesn't have that Licorice and leather thing going on; but it more then makes up for it with a creamy caramel, dark chocolate and espresso combo. I hope this sticks around "these parts" for a while.
