Light as an imperial stout on flavors and after it warms up even the aroma falls off along with the little flavor that was there. Carbonated head and dissipates quickly. Light bodied, honestly light all around, not something I would go back to. Sorry weyerbacher I do like your beers but pass on this one for me.

Look: Poured into a snifer. Pitch black, pours with a big bubbly head which fades to just a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Deep roasty notes, with some chocolate, sweet, dark fruits.

Taste: Dark and roasty, dark chocolate flavors, with just the smallest touch of a coffee finish.

Feel: fulled bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall: I don't have much to say about this beer, but it is infact excellent.

Have this a year after "best by" date, bottled in 2012. Does this RIS age well??

A: black, but poured a little thin to me, meaning a gave it a straight pour at the end to generate some head. That head did come, not in large quantities, but some larger bubbles, not foamy or creamy as if like, but they did sustain in a decent fashion.

S: dark chocolate, little coffe, light smokiness come out with a little warmth. I also get aight banana scent in the background

T/M: the mouthfeel, being a little weak is what first gets me. The tastes are a bit more bitter than the smell, also, with an almost hint-of-lemon bitterness underlying the coffe/smokey taste I get from the beer. The end taste is coffee bitter in nature.

O: expected more from the taste given the smell, but it was fine overall. I think with a better body, I'd put this I a list of must have again, but as is, I won't avoid or seek it.
