Poured into Duvel tulip; very black with a thin beige head. Impressive lacing that leaves a nice polka dot effect and an oily residue.
Nose is creamy, burnt barrel and bakers chocolate that opens up into caramel, toasted malt, and brown sugar sweetness. Notes of pine appear as well.
Silky on the tongue. Initial taste is french roast mocha, roasted malt and cream. Mouth begins to dry and the hops say hello with a nice numbing effect. After taste is a wood-caramel with a mild alcohol burn down the throat. The mouthfeel finishes with an oily glaze; nice.
This goes down as one of my favorite RIS. The last time I had one, I was coming off the flu and my taste buds were wrecked; so glad I picked up the single. The solid amount of hops really entertain the palate. Victory continues to impress!
