look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: totally pitch black. head is duel-toned light and dark browns. present, but not overwhelming. not as good retention as i expect with a RIS. some lacing.
S: licorice. milk chocolate. a bit of smoke. maybe just a product of the roasted malt, but definitely there. notes of vanilla. varied and complex.
T: molasses-like roast. licorice again. cloys to the palate with sweet flavors and sugar. serious sugar. feels like a little is left sticking my lips together. a real belly warmer. finish is just a tad bit hickory.
M: carbonation is soft and very mellow. very full body.
D: a big bodied RIS. drinks like a rich red wine or glass of port. definitely a winter beer. or dessert. or at least cool weather. or at least dont drink it for breakfast. actually, go for it. and then go back to bed.
Serving type: bottle
