750ml bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pitch black with a one-finger tan head
S: Roasted malts, chocolate, plum, a hint of alcohol
T: Plum, dark malt, chocolate and a big dose of alcohol
M: Full-bodied, fairly boozy
O: Not bad though the alcohol is too high. Reminds me more of a barleywine than RIS. Crank the malt up and abv down and it would be pretty decent

I poured the beer into a pint glass. The beer is very dark. The head is coffee with cream colored. I can smell something, but I'm not sure what. I got cherries on my initial taste. The beer is fruity in initial taste, I can't taste much malt or roastiness. The roasted flavors come out in the aftertaste. I notice an alcohol burn.
