Thanks Nate for including this with a trade.
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter.
A - Pours an extremely dark, inky black. A two finger head of dark brown(one of darkest heads around). A good amount of lacing.
S - chocolate milk. Slight roast. Caramel. Sweet. Milky Way. Dark stone fruit.
T - lots of the same. Lots of choclate and caramel. Sticky and sweet on the lips. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Lots of toffee too. Not much in the way of hop flavor or aroma. A slight hop bitterness on the back but has melded well. Milky Way. Some stone fruit notes appears as it warms.
M - full bodied and thick, almost shake like.
D - fairly low to medium-low.
Overall, a fantastic tasting RIS. A little thicker and stickier than I like but still good. The high IBU stated doesn't come through, so I can only assume the bottle is from last year. Drinks a little cleaner when consumed on the cold side.

Thanks to Beergod1 for the trade!
Poured into a tulip glass. Bottle date 7/11/13
A) Dark used Motor oil, thick melted chocolate ice cream, no head expected for almost a 12%.
S) Smoked malt, espresso, and baker's chocolate, Cavendish pipe tobacco
T) Not what i expected at all. Soy sauce, beef jerky, vanilla, cavendish pipe tobacco; aftertaste dark chocolate, dark fruit, and figs.
M) Thick medium amount of carbonation.
O) I was disappointed to say the least. Too much up front, too little in the back. I do want to trade for another and cellar for a while. Even as it warmed nothing changed.
