Thank you adrock7309 for including this as an extra in our trade!
Served into a snifter at room temperature.
A: Black as the dark side of the moon. The head is very fluffy, almost a little jellyish in it's behaviour, cocao coloured it is. The king quickly loses his crown though but leaves plenty of lacing on the sides of the glass and a thin blanket of foam on top of the black liquid underneath.
No apparent bubbles.
S: Wonderful smell! I get chocalates, coffeebeans, dark bread and wort.
T: The first tastes that comes to mind are dark chocolate and coffee. The hops have nice combination of bitterness and fruityness. The aftertaste is bitter.
M: I perceive the body to be a little thin for a RIS. It's quite bubbly and dry on the palate.
O: Delightful beer that has a nice combination of dark roasted malts and generous amounts of hops. The lack of body brings down the score a bit but I would very well like to drink this one again.
