Pours out a pitch black with huge brown head that laces well. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, coffe, and a sweetness makes this stout very inviting. The taste is huge, yet fairly well balanced. Big roasted malts, almost a barley wine type taste in there nice hops help round out the huge malt backbone on this one. Molasses, coffee, chocolate, burnt bitterness, well crafted brew here. Very smooth, creamy mouthfeel with nice light carbonation makes this extremely drinkable. One of my favorite RIS, must have again and again.

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.
