Thanks to Cellarbrations Carlisle for this one and also thanks to Spicelab for the notes as on my bottle it only has the front label with the picture mentioned and i didnt get any of those notes and the only thing i knew about this was that it was a RIS anyway it pours a dark kola hue with a cherry background with a khaki two finger head that stays and leaves nice lacing everywhere,the smell is chocolate coated cherries,coconut,boozy alcohol,marshmellows,mocha and a slight herbalness but apart from that pretty much just like a Cherry Ripe,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with light carbonation and has tastes of dark rich chocolate,a hint of burnt wood,molasses,irish coffee,a touch of booze and finshed with a chocolate coated cherry sour sweetness and overall not bad and not your everyday RIS cheers.

750mL bottle purchased from Beervana. Shared with MrKennedy and mulder1010. Reviewed from notes.
Deep chocolate brown, not RIS dark, with a moderately dense saffron head that persists before eventually leaving a strong lace curtain.
First impressions are palpably dry, contributed by burnt tyres, tar, plasticy phenolics, with just a mild floral edge. Over time, an enticing cherry-ripe character creeps and builds.
Chocolate, dry char, wholemeal toast and variable levels of cherry-ripe.
For 11% it's not overly thick, but nice and velvety. Demure, but just sufficient carbonation.
Half-expecting a train-wreck, but this is well approachable. If anything, the only flaw is that it lacks the cojones and brooding personality of the best RISs. Would potentially improve with age.
