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.

Appropriately dark for an imperial stout. 1 cm dark tan head. Smell is somewhat sweet and malty but not very aromatic. Taste is very roasty and surprisingly bitter and hoppy for the style. Alcohol is apparent. Mouthfeel is nice an chewy, which is what I expect from an RIS but the finish leaves a coating that lingers long after you swallow. Enjoyable, but a bit too bitter to be a regular for me.
