4.16/5 rDev +0.5%
Bottle poured into a bunch of snifter tasters. No bottle date to be found....
A - Black as night with minimal head, maybe half finger and no lace to be found
S - This is my favorite aspect of the beer. Dark chocolate, black licorice, espresso shine through
T - Chocolate, milky creaminess, coffee bitterness, roasted malts, toffee, mild hops with a very noticeable ABV
M - Carbonation, some bitterness off the palate
O - A really solid RIS. I wish there was a bottle date because I would like to compare a fresh and aged one. Seems like the age would temper down the bitterness but who knows. Overall it's an impressive brew

Opaque black pour with a finger thick cap of rich mocha colored foam. Smells roasted malt, dried prunes, coffee, dark chocolate, figs, dates, raisins. Taste is rich dark chocolate, figs, espresso roasted coffee, roasted malt. A chocolaty sweetness attempts to develop though this is mostly checked by a wash of hop, coffee ground and dark chocolate bitterness. Nice creamy mouthfeel in a medium-heavy beer. Finish is lightly bitter and chocolate. Good stuff though not as complex as some of the bigger RIS out there.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. Pours a solid black with a finger-and-a-half, light brown head. Creamy.
Aroma: Creamy, sweet chocolate, espresso, roast malts. Very aromatic, very nice. Perhaps a little sweet for the style?
Taste: Follows nose, roasty, slightly astringent malt character is much more evident. Doesn't quite live up to the expectations aroused by the aroma, which is truly excellent. Becomes smoother as it warms.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, viscous, but almost a little light for a big RIS. Very smooth.
Overall: Very nice RIS. The first beer I've tried from Fulton, and I am very impressed.
