Poured into snifter; jet black with a solid finger of mocha head.
Smells of chocolate, lesser coffee, dark malt.
Tastes of big dark malt, lots of milk and dark chocolate, and some coffee. Light dark fruit and caramel.
Mouthfeel is big and full, well carbonated but clean.
Overall, a tasty and well done stout. I'd love to find the other variants someday.

2011 vintage into a teku glass

A - Pitch black with dark brown head

S - Is this stout flavored? Huge milk chocolate and roasted malts. Dark fruits, figs, even a slight cherry on the nose. Wow, is this complex!

T - Oh yeah. The dark fruits are more on the taste. Still getting the milk chocolate and espresso notes. Just great.

M - Fluffy and thick as all hell. Goes down so smooth.

O - Easily the best non-flavored and non barrel-aged RIS I've ever had. So much going on here. Feels bigger than the 8.5% abv and so robust. Will seek this out again. The force is strong with this stout.
