Notes/Commercial Description:
Throughout the ages, man has been fascinated by the quest for hidden knowledge, the search for the secret to transforming the elemental into the extraordinary, the simple into the sublime. Ladies and gentlemen, we present for your consideration this exotic, inky concoction, the almost magical creation of our modern day alchemists who have turned humble grains—barley, wheat, rye, and oats—into black, liquid gold. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, crème brulée. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish.

3.93/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a pitch black color, like sludge, with a 2 finger mocha head.

Lots of roasted coffee and smokey chocolate in the nose with a touch of some unpleasant rusty metal smell

Flavor is very balanced with the coffee and chocolate blending well fading to a slightly hoppy astringent finish

Medium body, slightly over carbonated and prickly on the back of the tongue.

Solid offering. Not my favorite RIS but I enjoyed it and was happy it was available in 12 oz singles. Drinking a 750 of a big stout is tough on weeknights!

3.71/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours black as night with a nice head. Scents are roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Somewhat burnt, which brings the score down. Taste is similar to smell but with a good deal of hops. Not excessive but more than I'd like. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel yet more carbonated than most in the style. A solid imperial stout.
