12oz bottle poured into snifter.
Appearance-pours black, with a thin khaki head that vanishes quickly, splashes of lacing on the glass. 4
Aroma-more hoppy than most RIS's out there. Dark fruits are there with plum taking over. Chocolate seems to be muted in this. 3.75
Taste-hops come out a lot stronger than I would expect for this style. Citrus right up front,roasted coffee also stands out at first. Milk chocolate brings out the sweetness. Really surprised how hoppy this is and it's not exactly a good thing. I just don't think these flavors mess well together. 3
Feel-feel is pretty standard for a RIS, although the bitterness of the hops seem to jump out, mild carbonation, coats well. 4.25
Overall-not to impressed with this. It's too bitter and just when you think you are going to get some sweetness it get muddled together with more bitterness. Maybe I just prefer my stouts with a more robust chocolate and roasted flavor. I don't think I would ever buy this again. 3
