Served in a snifter at the brewpub.

Gotta give it to Atlas: they've got a larger vocabulary than most. This stuff pours a straight obsidian topped by a finger of brown foam. The nose comprises darkly-roasted malts, dark greens, cocoa, and a hint of coffee. The taste brings in more of the same, with those heavily-roasted malts really shining through with a pronounced dark bitterness. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a very nice RIS, one whose full flavors compensate for the slight lack of body.
