look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Nearly pitch black with huge dark tan head that last all the way to the bottom of the glass. Heavy, thick lacing that almost completely coasts the inside of the glass. A beautiful beer.
S: Big toasted malt aroma. Bitter sweet chocolate and coffee. Light hints of tobacco. Nice hop presence as well.
T: As you would expect, big malty flavors. Roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, and fresh brewed expresso. Hints of dark fruit and raisins. Subtle notes of vanilla and sweet cream. Followed by a nice hop bite that lingers for a while on the tongue. Delicious.
M: Definitely full bodied, but not as thick and creamy as some other RIS's that I've tried.
D: NEBC puts out alot of great beers, and this one is no different. Big malt character that you expect from an RIS, but the aroma was a little too light. Either way, an outstanding brew. It's too bad we won't be able to get the awesome Star Wars graphics anymore. It's easily the coolest looking beer bottle I've seen. Hats off to NEBC.
