This had a black body and came with a thin, short lived tan head.

Lots going on in the nose, tons of rich chocolate plus roasty coffee and a hint of berry. Nothing subtle here, just massively enticing big stout.

Tastes every but as good as it smells, one of the best stouts I've had. Wave after wave of chocolaty coffee with hints of berry and cherry before a lightly charred finish. This had gentle carbonation and a body with medium heft. Just outstanding overall, so glad this was on the board tonight.

2013 edition Bottle #431/450. Thanks to Pat for sharing.

Midnight black with an impressive, persistent mocha head. Totally looks the part.

High cocoa dark chocolate, fennel, aniseed, tobacco. Hints at sweetness via fleeting wafts of carmael fudge, but otherwise it's uncompromisingly dry.

Feel is full and even. Booze is well contained.

One of the more impressive and untarnished RIS's around. Unapologetically roasty and ballsy.
