Pours a deep rich chocolate black into the brandy snifter, barely any carbonation present, no head, no lacing!
Aroma is heavenly roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, as a RIP should be. Medium mouthfeel, subtle hoppiness, and the tinge of alcohol warms my throat!!
Very tasty, with enough sweetness to mix with the 10% ABV.
I'd drink this again, for sure!

Serving type: on-tap

(poured into a standard tulip)

A: dark brown liquid... ample tan head, sort of creamy/glossy, killer retention and lace... absolutely terrible bottle label - did his kid draw that?

S: earthy, lightly floral/perfumy hops trying to poke through the curious soft roasty aromas (faint coffee, faint molasses... big malty foundation... all-in-all subdued though

T: darn malty at its core... mellow roast rising up midway, taming the malt a bit, but not exactly balancing it... firm, but super-polished bitterness sticks around... mildly bittersweet... the alcohol is damn near silent... not exactly 'stout' - more like a strong porter?

M: somewhat smooth, somewhat dry... not the least bit heavy or viscous - quite the opposite - soft-ish, almost cottony... perhaps a mild roundness... mellow-ass warmth

O: surprisingly good for what it is... wasn't expecting much... decidedly American stout flavors, however, strangely easy-drinking for 10%... great for the value!

4.05/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

a year old bottle, stored at cellar temp in my makeshift beer cellar.

poured a dark brown almost black pour with a finger of tan head which dissipated slowly and left behind nice lacing. smells very sweet, malty, nutty (pecans), oak, raisinets. the flavor is much like the smell at first but then has a slight oxidized off taste kind of giving it a cork flavor in the finish. roasted grains, toffee, nuts, sugary sweet chocolate flavors. the mouthfeel is a bit light for the style, medium body with, again for the style, high carbonation.

this isn't a bad RIS at all, and i'm glad i finally got to drink a bottle. i always see it but skip it since there's a million other things i want to try. had this one in the cellar and decided to go for it. worth trying at the least.. wouldn't mind having this one on tap.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours pretty black, doesn't seem thick or viscous but does have a 2 finger tan head.

S - Very light nose... A bit of roasted malts & light licorice.

T - Nondescript, light malts with semi sweet chocolate.

M - Light body with medium carbonation. Needs to be thicker with less carbonation.

O - A bad portrayal of any beer in the class. A RIS should not be like this.
