Dark brown-black with a handsome head of dark beige in the Maredsous goblet. Mouthfeel starts out with nice clouds of carbonation and a prickle to go with the sweetness.

Such an abundance of sweet malt, it might be called candy-like. But the burnt sugar and a rumble of hops provide some balance. Deep caramel flavor with a little chocolate. More mellow than the high-hop versions.

Totally sippable and one of the in the RIS style. It's just swet as sin. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Bottlecraft in San Diego.

Incredible RIS.
Velvet mouthfeel, Rich with chocolate, vanilla, and almost overwhelming caramel notes. Best last-minute beer purchase I have made in recent memory. $6 with my employee discount, but at under $10 retail, a GREAT value.

Picked this bad boy up at a beer store in Louisiana! Light beading of carbonation around the edge of the glass and jet black in color. Definitely a noticeable hoppiness upfront. This velvety beer finishes strong with a nice heat at the end. A top notch non-barreled RIS for sure!
