750 Bottle purchased on the day of re-release about 1.5 yrs ago. Poured into my CCB snifter.
Appearance: Black beer that pours very thickly. Just a ring of carbonation around the edge of the glass. Not much lacing.
Smell: Oaky and strong roasted malts. Alcohol along with some chocolaty semi sweetness.
Taste: The taste follows the smells. Oak and roasted malts. Some sweet char and chocolate. Molasses and licorice. I also get some dried fruit, raisins, and fresh red grape juice. Some lingering bitterness after the initial sweetness fades. A big flavor profile, but not too complex, maybe with more age (I have one more bottle purhcased at the same time.)
Mouthfeel: The carbonation may be a little too strong for this big of a beer. It actually gives the front of the tongue a bit of a jolt at the front end of the sip. The body is nice and thick as it should be.
Overall: Maybe I am tough on this one because it is easy for me to get. Or maybe I do not know what I am talking about. Nothing wrong with the beer, except that I would not carb quite so much. I am curious to see what another year and a half will do for the other bottle.

Black colored beer with a small brown colored head.
Smells strongly of chocolate and caramel. Slight aroma of apple and toasted coconut. Sligt coffee aroma.
Starts out strongly tasting of chocolate and it is a little sweet. Mildly bittersweet taste. Coconut and caramel it tastes vaguely like a Mounds candy bar. Can't taste alcohol but it is sensed as a slight sting. Tasty yet mild tasting could pass for a Milk Stout.
Mouthfeel is full.
Overall a very tasty stout. Not quite a match for Stone RIS though.
