Poured from can into snifter. Dark as night with a decent, almost 2 finger tan head. Good retention and lacing. Smell is very complex of some chocolate, coffee, cream, and burnt grain. Taste is also wonderfully complex. Dark milk chocolate that almost has a creaminess too it with some coffee beans and toasted grain and dry malt. Very nice! Mouthfeel was full and thick as expected, very creamy. Overall a great beer. The ABV is well hidden and even for a RIS, its very complex.

Thanks to Fetus for a 4 pack of this good stuff

I gave it a simi-vigorous pour into my Chimay goblet producing a nice two finger head, so close to overflowing but it didn't. Color is deep and dark and the head is a soft brown color with minimal lacing. Smell of chocolate, coffee and molasses. Tastes of nice roasted malts, molasses, alcohol and some sweetness from the malt. Low carbonation and very thick making it nice and smooth. This is a great tasting beer but the 10% makes it a sipper that i will definitely want to have a gain.

A. A hard pour left me with with nothing but a black glass and some inkling of blood red foam
S. Coffee and booze were the first scent to hit my nose. Enough so that I decided to check to ABV. 10.5%. Shoulda drank this one first.
T. My first RIS, and its a far cry from stouts I've had before. The taste proved my nose knows, coffee chocolate booze and black licorice. Basically if its a black or dark brown food, its in this beer.
IMO it got better with a little time in the glass. Could be the taste could be the 10.5% playing with your taste buds.
M. The lowest score of this beer for me. The booze kind of lingers in your mouth. Kind of like after you rinse with scope that feel on your tongue.
D. If you take away the mouthfeeling and you set aside a chunk of time and don't rush this beer its delicious.
