Standard RIS dressed up with some tangy Belgian funk.
___

A: Opaque black body with a fairly persistent one finger dark khaki head.

S: Similar scents to a regular RIS... cocoa, molasses, earthy hops, I could swear bourbon, but also something different, and very interesting, kinda like a rotten banana fart... kinda funky, but much better than it sounds.

T: On that palate, the traditional RIS flavors of deeply roasted cocoa and dark fruit dominate, though the Belgian yeast is definitely doing something interesting, imparting a certain light tanginess. Alcohol is also clearly apparent.

M: Light and fluffy. I believe the higher carbonation and more obvious alcohol helps achieve this quality.

O: An interesting spin on my favorite style... not sure it's a hit or anything, but definitely worthy of consideration.
