As anticipated this beer is outstanding. It pours black as sin and yields an awesome head similar to the creama on a good espresso.
The head doesn't last long but as I swirl it around and let it breathe it makes an appearance again only to fade away quickly.
The smell is great. Lots og nice balance between chocolate and sweetness. I only get faint hints of coffee but nice all around.
This taste outstanding, like a good RIS should be. The most note worry aspect for me is how smooth the finish is. Its almost like its been in the cellar for several years already as the isnt too hot at all. I cant wait till get a hold of some of the other varietals of this and also see how good these age.
Nice work CCB.
