pours a viscous and black with a small brown head forming, which dies down rather quickly.

aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and licorice. hints of vanilla and molasses, and some coffee in the background. believe there is a bit of alcohol lingering in there somewhere.

Sweet caramel malts and molasses to go along with the sweetness of the licorice notes. Plenty of dark, roasted malts, coffee and bitter hops.

Full in body & medium carbonation.

Great beer. I don't usually care for oatmeal stouts but this hardly categorizes since it is an imperial stout. Will gladly kiss this frog again to get to the gem of a beer that's inside.

So I have been waiting on drinking this one until the time was right and I think tonight was the perfect night to kick back, relax, and open this bad boy.

A - Motor oil color and look, about a half inch of caramel colored head, minimal lacing

S - Sweet coffee and chocolate

T - Dark chocolate, little bit of bitter coffee, roasted malts; didn't pick up on the oatmeal though

M - Thick, just the way I like my RISs

O - Really great bang for the buck. Definitely a beer that I will be buying more of to try at different intervals.
