4.13/5  rDev +13.8%

Bottle BB 7.30.14 at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of roasted malt and (weak) hops
Head small (1.5 cm), light brown, creamy, sloooowly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent – covers entire inside of glass with tiny bubbles
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor begins with a typical roasted malt nuttiness and sweetness which is followed by a sort of melon taste with a quick flash of alcohol. No diacetyl.
Palate full, creamy, soft carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.25, Palate 4, Overall 4.06. Final weighted score: 4.125
This is a very tasty RIS with an unexpected blast of melon from the New Zealand hops. The alcohol is noticeable at the end but is not overwhelming. In most RISs, I cannot detect the hops, but here they show up in both the nose and the taste – a pleasant surprise. Overall, this is a very good RIS of which I will buy more to age.
