look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours beautifully in a tulip glass with a outstanding 2 inch tan head that sits atop the beer

Smell- Dark and milk chocolate. Oaky presence with hints of vanilla and a touch of dark fruit.

Taste- definitely a RIS. Lots of oak taste to this. Dark choclate, raisins, vanilla and nice alcohol kick in the end.

Overall - the oak to this stands out and plays along very well to the beer itself. Perfect with a cigar.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

L: Pours a deep black color with almost no head until the end of the pour. A short and thick brown colored head that leaves little lacing as it fades makes it pretty decent looking.
S: Smells of deep roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of hops and alcohol at the end. Smells hot but inticing.
T: Tastes of deep roasted malts, some slightly bitter black malts, rich chocolate, caramel, and coffee with a big alcohol kick at the end.
M: Hot, warming, perfect amount of carbonation, thick bodied.
D: OK drinkability, it was pretty hot feeling so it was harder to get down than some other ones, but at 8% abv it was still pretty drinkable.
