12oz. bottle (not sure as to the vintage), poured into a Bell's tulip. Bam!
Appearance - Oily and inky black RIS body, with almost no head, granted I did pour it very carefully.
Smell - I seem to get a large amount of dark fruits, think plums and dates, along with soy sauce. This beer specifically, I have always gotten soy sauce from, not unappetizing just there. After revisiting I get some nice roasty chocolate odors with some subtle hops.
Taste - Nice bitter dark chocolate flavors, followed by dark fruit flavors. Even though I always smell soy sauce in this one I never taste it. This beer has such a wonderful bittersweetness that is amazing and I feel separates it from other RIS'.
Mouthfeel - Full, mouth-coating, and smooth. This beer is liquid velvet. A treat and a sipper.
Overall - This beer is great and thankfully I can get it online when it's available since Bell's doesn't distribute to NY.
