4.33/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

pours from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. Deep black color this tan head of about 1 in. that stick around... and around .... and around... still there....

smell is of oats and malty sweetness... very odd to smell oat to me.... always thought of it as a taste and mouth-feel character. slight ginger bread aroma. no real hop presence.

sweet malt followed by coffee and chocolate flavors... then a warming alcohol taste and then some bitter pine like hops. some oat flavor in the beginning but rather light compared to what the aroma would lead you to believe... good taste

mouth feel is thick and creamy like a stout should be... higher carbonation for a stout i thought as well.

Overall a great beer.... Thanks to HippityHop24 for the trade... CHEERS!!!

4.48/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 50 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance: Thick, motor oil pour and jet black in the glass with no light coming through. A half finger foamy dark brown head. Alcohol legs present. It doesn't look better than this for a stout

Smell: Huge roasted and chocolate malt bill with a undertone of dark fruit. I detect a good amount of alcohol in the nose as well

Taste: Wow, bold roasted malts upfront, milk chocolate sweetness in the middle, with an espresso like finish.

Mouthfeel: Fairly full bodied; Coats my mouth with a velvety feel. Some heat from the alcohol and a moderately bitter finish

Overall: It was a surprisingly cool fourth of July. After a night of pyrotechnics, I sit alone in complete silence on my porch as I analyze this beer. I could not have asked for a much better one. It's thick, bold, and velvety; Everything you'd want in a RIS. The only thing I can nit pick about is the presence of alcohol which takes away from the aroma and taste a little bit. But on a cold winter day that could be complimenting. I could see this aging beautifully. Reminds me a lot of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. Went perfectly with my Sarris chocolate bar. Not the best RIS I've had, but not too far behind either. A sipper of a beer. I'm looking forward to having this come winter. Holds its own next to the likes of Founders and Expedition. Highly recommended. Cheers!
