Pours out looking thick! Inky black color. An initial dark tan head forms, then subsides.
It’s got that RIS smell, which is a good thing, though not charting any new territory. Just huge roast, char, espresso, cocoa, and fruit notes.
Before I can even think about the flavor, I’m remarking at the body. This is thick! Body is just so full and satisfying. Flavor is equally large with an enormous amount of roasted malt at work here. Finish reveals some leafy hops, and there’s also a lingering char and black chocolate that dry it all out. Slight boozy tingle.
Overall this is a fine beer and worthy of all its accolades. Now I’m really eager to try it fresh to compare. Though I suspect it’s held up well in the can.

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.
