Motor oil black in color, the beer effortlessly forms a 2 inch, frothy, dark brown head. Great lacing down the glass, the head holds for several minutes. The beer looks alive but it begs to be drunk. Aroma is a wonderful melange of dark fruit, chocolate, oak, and a little bretty must. Taste is quite amazing from start to finish; I liken it to a teeter totter like tightrope walk with a rebalancing interplay of slightly sour dark fruit, mild roasted bitterness, and a semi-sweet chocolate flavor. Beer is full bodied, with above average carbonation which works well for me. The carbonation is tight and imparts a delicate, silky mouthfeel to the brew. Alcohol level is masked completely with the exception of a slight warming feel in the finish. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and would seek it out.

Pours a deep, deep brown, with a sense tan head. Cherry, balsamic, bubblegum, and light hints of dark chocolate roast form the aroma. Highly unusual. Flavor reveals similar tart cherry and vinegar, but roast malt and dark cocoa counter and dominate. The finish is slightly roast bitter. Quite complex! Banana and roasted malt round out the profile. There's a lightly phenolic character that's offputting.

Had on tap at Frisco taphouse Columbia on 5/28/14
A-Midnight black colour, huge two finger dark brown head, that eventually dies down to a ring.
S-Nose is a little bourbon, that gives way to sugary vanilla barrel character.
T-Flavor is similar to the aroma bit not as good
M-Mouthfeel is a little watery but well balanced.
O-Overall a great RIS that I think could be even better with the taste and mouthfeel
