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.

Bottle from Cost Plus World Market Palm Springs CA - 2012 edition - $3.50

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a small size frothy head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and faint coffee. There is also some fruity notes, smoke, and some anise.

Overall - Interesting blend of flavours. The smokey/fruity notes make this one a little different from your typical RIS. A good beer but I think I prefer the stereotypical flavours.

Best by: 09/13/15

A - It is pretty much black. A normal pour yielded half a glass of mocha head.

S - I get some coffee and dark chocolate aromas. I also notice some smokiness. As it warms some dark fruit becomes apparent.

T - I tasted the dark fruit right away. Some cocoa comes through. It finishes with a bitter coffee flavor. A little bitter for my liking.

M - Full

O - I loved the smell. The bitter finish was not for me. I think I would have preferred this beer with some age.
