look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
12Oz can poured into my Duvel tulip
A: Black as pitch with a persistent dark brown frothy head. Pours thick as blood and probably will stain clothes just as badly!
S: Combination of sweet and burnt chocolate/chocolate malts up front. There's cream, notes of coffee and just a hint of raisins in there. This is what i expect from a good RIS
T: Thick bitter burnt chocolate, coffee that slowly fades leading into sweeter palate with just the hint of cream and milk chocolate. The finish is long and bitter. It's "standard" world class RIS.
M: Smooth, fluffy with a pleasant carbonation
D: Split one after dinner as dessert or have two for dinner.

A 5 year old can, my last one. My notes above are accurate in terms of flavors, but not for feel. Despite a fullness, there's a lightness/wateriness interspersed with the thicker, chewier finish. Pretty solid. 4/4/4/4/4

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
