4/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
22oz bomber picked up at Pinocchio's in Media, PA. Poured into a Chimay goblet.
AP: Not much of head on this one. Only about 1/4" tan head at most that fizzled down to a dusting across the surface and a ring along the glass. Decent lacing, however. Colour is a very dark murky muddy brown bordering on black.
AR: Hearthy black bread with chocolate syrup and molasses are the first aromas I get, with a bit of alcohol. Hints of coffee/espresso and bitter chocolate in the background with a bit of rum/brandy soaked dark fruits of fig and raisin.
T: Flavour mirrors the nose with the addition of a chocolate pudding/fudge taste and brownie batter. Earthy bitter hops on the aftertaste that wrestle with the sweetness of the malts to give some balance. Alcohol in the nose is better hidden in the taste.
M: Fairly carbonated for a RIS which makes the body feel a bit lighter to me. Still, it does have a moderate creaminess and an oily finish that coats the tongue.
OV: A solid RIS, just not great/outstanding. Not chewy enough for me as I like my RISs to be big bold mothers. Flavours were good and I liked the bitter Earthy hop bite on the aftertaste that lingered. I'd have this one again.

3.76/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Blackish dark brown/tan with a foamy, thick 12 inch head, lots of sticky lacing.
Smell - Roasted malts, raisin, plum, fig, molasses, chocolate, cocoa, not really abundant aromas.
Taste - First sip starts out very roasted, smokey malts. Thick charcoal flavor with traces of raisin and plum with a minor cherry sweet flavor. Nice amount of bitter hops with bitter coffee comes in after the first wave of smoked malts. A little yeasty sweet note mixed with molasses adds a sweet note to a rather overly bitter beer. Alcohol adds a little warmth in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Roasted malts nail tongue. Coffee and chocolate coat the palate along with some hops and sugars. Aftertaste is malty, bitter, coffee and chocolate with a little alcohol.
Overall - A good solid and ris. Really surprised by the roasted smoked flavor, and also the amount of hops and bitter coffee flavor. The coffee/expresso bitter flavor left on the tongue is a odd flavor, and a turnoff to me honestly. Still, I can drink this and enjoy it but its not my favorite ris.
