L: Great, thick, eggshell-brown head. Maintains a 1/6 inch ring around the glass. Very minimal light penetration. Dark brown gradient to black.

S: Coffee, booze, wood, root beer, and grape, weirdly. I'm sure I'm wrong, but I got that impression.

T: Roasted malts, booze finish. Not much else.

F: Pillowy, soft, somewhat creamy, but more crispy carbonation is detectable.

O: A boozier, more expensive, less crafty tasting Deschutes Obsidian. I'd pick Obsidian.

500ml into a teku.

A: Pours a solid red-tinged black with a huge thick tan head.

S: Roasty, slightly vegetal carob from the intersection of the yeast and malts, cola, cocoa, light anise.

T: Taste brings charred grain, mild raisin, more roast, bitter dark chocolate.

M: Medium-thick bodied with moderate carb.

O: A little too much roasted malt and the Belgian strain doesn't add much complexity. Meh.

Pours a dark brown with light passages at the edges. Not much head, some lacing. Nose features milk chocolate, some fruity belgo notes, cocoa, roast, and honey. Taste has heavy dark chocolate up front followed by signing act Belgian yeast character and some licorice notes. Mouthfeel is moderate with medium carbonation. Overall, decent flavors here, not as hearty as I'd hope for a RIS.
