Thanks to vinyljunkie's generosity for this one.

Pours a thick, almost pitch black with some dark brown around the edges. There's a slight brown ring but no real head to speak of. Minimal retention.

The smell is complex--wood, espresso, molasses, toasted malts, oatmeal & slightly viney.

The taste is bitter from the burnt malts, strong roasted coffee, and surprising bitter citrus hops. There's also a richness with flavors of oatmeal and molasses. Mouthfeel is crisp and carbonated but thick like motor oil.

This is a complex RIS with the interesting hoppiness and crispness. It is a bit more burnt/bitter than I expected, but that helped completely cover the ABV.
