2012 vintage

a - poured a one finger thick dark brown head into a snifter that left a thin ring. the body was dark black.
s - clean and cool aroma with a hint of chocolate.
t - coffee, roasty, smoky and peaty. the finish was very astringent coffee.
m - thin body.
o - very disappointing RIS. thin, more like a coffee stout than a RIS.
