look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A - Poured into a la Trappe chalice, the beer is thick and black. A brown cap forms on top. For people who like big, dark beers, this is heaven.

A - Belgian spice manages to climb up and compete with roast and caramel. Not as stunning as the visual, for me, but I think a lot of people accustomed to Stout would really like the char notes.

T - Belgian spice, caramel, anise, tobacco. What differentiates this one from a normal RIS are the funky Belgian yeast, a plus, and the ashey finish, a detriment. Traditionally, Black Patent malt has been used in RIS's, but this one had too much. The heat is restrained; it's warming quality off-sets the big flavors.

M - Heavy and thick, but still manages to to finish dry. This isn't cloying like many Weyerbacher beers.

O - I am surprised I drank as much of this beer as I did. Weyerbacher beers are often sweet and hot. I'm not sure how much time this beer had to mellow, but it was drier and smoother than customary of this brewery. I'd imagine the yeasts deserves most of that credit.

While enjoyable, at no point was I blown away by the flavors of this beer. Worse, the roasted bitterness became too much. There was no creaminess or as much development of flavors as in the best Stouts, largely because of the more severe roasted malts.

There are some great qualities here that will eventually cause me to seek TINY out again. But it really sucks when your beer begins to taste like an ash tray.
