look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

The colour is jet black, the liquid is clear. The two finger head is brown and compact. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is roasted and malty with notes of dark chocolate, caramel, raisins and (quite a lot of) molasses. Some bitterness and hints of alcohol.

The taste is thick and malty with some sweetness. Some clean bitterness. Molasses, salt liquorice and burned malts. Some dark chocolate and hints of peaches. Full body. The aftertaste is smooth with warming alcohol, prunes and charcoal. The long finish got notes of dried fruits and chocolate toffee.

The liquid is thick, the carbonation low. The very small bubbles are small and short-lived.

A thick, fruity and smooth RIS, but I miss some carbonation.

A very good RIS from Colorado. The first taste, prior to warming up a little bit in the tulip glass had strong notes of chocolate and hints of coffee taste. As it has warmed it has smoothed out. Color is pitch black, as a RIS should be. Good head, almost creamy with a color like chocolate. Overall a very good RIS. This was from a can, and this can had been sitting in the basement on concrete for a few months prior to chilling a little and serving.

12 oz can was poured into a snifter. Canned 9/15/13.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing as the beer was drank.

Smell: Toffee, caramel, molasses, smoke, milk chocolate, roasted, warm booze, earthy, and dark fruits.

Taste: A solid blend of aromas. Low bitterness in the rear too. Very tasty and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied , a little booze, low to medium carbonation, and very tasty.

Overall: Solid, solid RIS. Enjoyed a lot over the years and many more in the future too.
