pours straight, thick black with a thin layer of dark brown soda like head that quickly recedes to a thin layer around the rim of the glass, check that, it has now receded to an almost non-existent single line of bubbles most of the way around the glass. The aroma is tons of strong roasted malts and a hint of alcohol. Not a lot of nuance but pleasant. Taste is more of the same, pretty straightforward, lots of roasted, chocolately malt with a touch of acridness and a good dose of warming alcohol that manages to avoid being harsh. Carbonation is medium-low which gives a good smooth and full mouthfeel. Overall this is a super nice, very accessible RIS, it lacks some of the complexity of its more specialized brethren but it does not disappoint.

12oz can into pint glass.

Pours an almost black color with a slight dark red tint. When held up to the light, it's blood red around the edges of the glass. Creamy caramel brown head.

Roast, cocoa, cherry, leather, slight coffee and booze notes on the nose.

Taste is acidic, roasty as all get-out, leathery, slightly chocolatey, bitter and savory.

Moderate to low carbonation with a sweet but dry mouthfeel. This is surprisingly un-boozy on the tongue.

Overall a very solid RIS. Some interesting savory notes that seem out of place but quite well balanced and the best concealed booziness I've ever had in a RIS. Would definitely drink again!
