Big thanks goes to MtGoat for this one.
First of all this beer gets some serious "points" (not included in my score) for packaging. The description of this beer, "brewed in a galaxy not too far away" is a nice touch. Pours pitch black thick like motor oils similar to other big RIS with an almost non-existent fizzy off-white head that disappears within seconds. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate and big espresso. The taste is smooth and creamy with chocolate, chalky cocoa and espresso. The mouthfeel is high in carbonation begins a little rough before getting smoother. Drinkability is good for the high abv, i had no problem finishing the bottle. Overall a solid RIS that I was fortunate enough to try.
