12 oz bottle pours an opaque black with fluffy head and great lacing. Dark coffee and cocoa aroma with charcoal. Rich flavor of dark chocolate and espresso with a nice bite and a little alcohol. Oily thick mouthfeel with nice chalky dry finish. Overall this is a really nice RIS.

A: Black as black, half a finger tan head, nice lacing. Great looking beer

S: Smells hoppy. I also get raisin, something roasty. This kind of smells like an IPA

T: Coffee, roasted malt, hoppy bitterness (too hoppy for my taste), chocolate. After taste similar to if you had a sip of DIPA, but with some coffee mixed in there.

M: Lighter than it looks, but still medium thickness, I can feel the alcohol burn a little bit, and finishes drier than most stouts.

O: I don't know if I like this beer yet. It's a bit too bitter for me.

12 oz bottle best before Jan 18 201some illegible number into a Duvel tulip.

Pours a fairly large light brown head off an aggressive pour. Dark body. The darker the berry...

Quite the enticing smell of big roast notes and coffee, chocoalte, leather and some earth.

...the more roasty and bitter the juice...The hops impart an enjoyable aftertaste. This reminds me of drinking French Roast. Just a tad too much of that roasty thang going on for my liking.

The body seems a little light for a RIS. Smooth and not much carbonation.

A - Pours thick and ink blakc in color. Foam is light brown. Slight lacing around the glass, but the foam dissaptes fast.

S - Strong scents of chocolate malt. Smell gains potency as the glass warms. This smells like a tried and true malt bomb.

T - Intense flavors of chocolate, rich malts, and a hint of whiskey warmth that gives the finish a slight burn. Really could give many of the acclaimed chocolate stouts a run.

M - For such a rich and complex stout this is very drinkable, and actually went well with a meal. Does taste syrupy thick.

O - Was very impressed with this one. Right there with many of the best stouts.
