12oz bottle into the oversized wine glass
A- A wonderful dense black with some brown. Little to no head with slight lacing around the glass.
S- First thing that grabbed me was a chocolate covered cherry, with some coffee and more dark fruits like prunes
T- Light on the malts, more of a dark fruit with chocolate and some coffee, kind of on the sweet side.
M- More on the lighter side of a stout, not overly heavy but smooth.
O- It is ok, more balanced out with nothing really popping out to grab me. But to be fair, I did try this after a Old Rasputin RIS and the SA iS is on the other end of the spectrum. Wonderfull appearance, average nose, alright taste and mouthfeel.
