Poured into a large brandy snifter. Pours black like motor oil with a creamy two-finger length tan head. Some bubbles can be seen collecting along the underside of the slowly dissipating head. The beer smells of dark roasted malts, coffee, anise, some alcohol, dark fruits, and chocolate.
The beer hits the palate with roasted malts and alcohol. I can pick up some of those notes from the nose like the chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, and anise. The beer has been waiting for about six months since bottling, but there is still hop bitterness blending with the strong roasted malt character of this beer. The aftertaste is dominated by the roasted malts. The alcohol becomes more apparent as the beer warms. It's a complex and aggressive tasting RIS, but still quite tasty.
The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The finish clings to the mouth, leaving a lingering aftertaste. This is a very good beer.

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.
