12 oz bottle with an Enjoy By date of 2015, so I think I'm good. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect pint glass.
A - Jet black body with a huge dark tan head that remained for at least 5 minutes while I checked on something and came back. Gorgeous.
S - Bitter chocolate, espresso, burnt toast, with some caramel and a hint of floral American hops.
T - Roasted coffee bean, chocolate, solid hops bitterness with a creamy finish. This stout is big on hops bitterness and flavor in comparison to most other RIS out there with SweetWater's Wet Dream being the only comparison I can think of. The huge ABV is very well masked with the warmth noticed in the belly only.
M - Rich and creamy, slight burnt aftertaste, great carbonation/retention.
D - For the style, this one is high because it's not boozy in the taste.
