Pours a completely opaque black with an initial fingers worth of chocolate milk colored head that dissipates quickly to a ring. Pretty nice lacing.
Smells of roasted malts, coffee, slight brown sugar, earthy hops and an underlying sweetness.
The coffee taste is more pronounced in the flavor than in the nose, and some dark fruits also come out, with some nice toasted malts and earthy, floral hops. There's a little malt sweetness in the front. Finishes with a nice hop bite that mixes with bitter bakers chocolate, with just a trace of alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel is pretty on point for the style. Rich and chewy, but not too heavy.
Overall, this is a super-reliable RIS, and, as one reviewer already mentioned, very reasonably priced. Looks good, smells good, and tastes even better.
