Served from a bottle into a snifter at around 50°F.
Appearance: Thick pour; Black with no light coming through. A frothy one finger tan head that dissipates quickly.
Smell: Dark fruit and roasted malts. Not as much chocolate as I was anticipating, but it's there. A slight alcohol presence as well.
Taste: It starts off with dark fruit, chocolate in the middle, and roasted malts, almost like espresso, on the end that lingers on the palate. A slight alcohol burn that compliments the cold weather. Very enjoyable.
A heavy medium mouthfeel. Slightly creamy yet has an alcohol bite.
Overall: I still have plenty of RIS to try, but this is right behind my favorites so far (Expedition, Founders, Ten Fidy) and very affordable for the style. Not as choclatey as the title indicates, but rather has all the traditional RIS characteristics and they mold together nicely. Very well done and especially appetizing with this harsh winter we have been having. Cheers!
