look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75

Coal black, thick pour, sort of a frothy looking head, not quite as thcik or pillowly as I like.Smell is surprinsgly faint and distant; very heavily roasted malts, spiciness, anise, raisins., alcohol. More dried, dark fruits than chocolate and coffee. Taste is similarily unorthodox for the style; sweeter, more dark fruits, port, figs? Sort of simplistic RIS, not what I was expecting.

Opens with chocolate and light roast on the nose. Pours bright, deep chestnut under a ½” lightly tan tinted foam cap. A big palate starts with dark, bitter chocolate spiced with espresso with some fresh grain notes swimming through. Has a slight warming but the alcohol is smooth and not hot. Very creamy and chewy with medium low carbonation.
