snifter at the brewery, followed by a growler at home.
A- Black, no light seeping thru..anywhere, this even pours thick and syrupy. Dark head that fades after a few minutes. Laces up the sides and just...sticks to the glass.
S- Dark roasted malts, chocolate, hints of plums and other dark fruits, some noticeable alcohol.
T- My oh my, chocolates, dark roast, right up front and very balanced. Some dark fruits in the middle that linger, and not a sweet type fruit. Finish is kinda of dry with a slight alcohol burn.
M- The best, very thick, and syrupy, sticky, it gets stuck in the cracks of your teeth. chewy and lingering.
O- At the moment its one of the best RIS ive had the pleasure of drinking. Hope I can find it in bottles somewhere to add to my shelf. I highly recommend this to everyone

Appearance: Very thick, black, syrupy pour. Very little head that disappears fast.
Smell: Very rich, malty, lots of coffee, with a very slight chocolate sweetness tones.
Taste: This is a VERY tasty beer. Very smooth, rich malt flavor with coffee and a little sweetness at the beginning. Finishes off with a slightly boozy bite, but not at all overpowering.
Mouthfeel: Very pleasant. Creamy, smooth, and full-bodied.
Overall: This beer is fantastic. If you can get your hands on it, DO IT. I am not a huge stout drinker, but this one has really made an impression on me. I will be picking up more very soon!
