Drank this while playing A--Hole. Poured it into a Sam Adams pint
I was practically pitch black with a roasted tan colored head.
The aroma started off as a blend of hops and robust malts. At first this had a hoped smell that reminded me of something murky. Later as the beer warmed up a bit the malts took over and it had a robust smell.
The taste was in line with the aroma. It started off with a hoped flavor. It had a bitter taste that gave it a nice paleness to kick things off. The hops flavor mingled with the robustness of the malts. As the beer warmed, however, the hops began to subside and the malts took over. It had a coffee like flavor followed by something nutty. There was also a dry flavor that stayed more or less consistent through out.
Conclusion: This was a really good RIS. I liked the hops profile on this one. I didn't think it was a robust as other RIS, but it was still very good.
Luckily I had this beer during two rounds of A-Hole when I got a bunch of good cards and served two terms as president.
