A: Pours a thick, viscous black with a few-cm. head of cocoa-colored head. Very good retention, no lacing.
S: Rich cocoa, molasses, espresso, moderate roast, a little caramel in the background provides something different for an RIS, a whiff of cherry. All in all very well balanced.
T: Roasted malt and dark chocolate, slight tang, finishing with lots of espresso and cocoa on the palate which leave behind a film. An everlasting finish. Some alcohol noticeable.
M: Full bodied with light carbonation. A little heat is evident. Mouthcoating and leaves some residue on the lips.
O: Superb example of the style, definitely on the bigger end but very well executed. This tip-toes into the roasty RIS category without going full blown.
