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!
