Pours a medium black with a fluffy, short-lived white head.
Cocoa and roasted malt are most apparent in the aroma. Also coffee, smoke, and a little vanilla/oak in there.
Dark chocolate, espresso, lots of smokiness. Not much sweetness and a rather underwhelming finish. Slightly metallic.
Mouthfeel is fine. Could stand to be a little thicker, but hardly watery.
Good drinkability - smooth, covers the alcohol well, and not overcarbonated.
I enjoyed the unique smokiness of this beer. Not the biggest or baddest RIS, but plenty to like.
