Fall 2009 bottling. Hoping this has lost a little of its heat.
A: Deep dark brown, with a decent tan head that forms a nice collar and is easy to revive.
S: Hefty dose of semi-sweet chocolate malt and black licorice. Also smells slightly earthy with a touch of roasted malt and some ethanol.
T: Dark chocolate brownie, with licorice and a light earthiness. Moderate sweetness balanced by roasted malt so that it's neither charred nor syrupy. Finish is long and slightly bitter.
M: Medium to thick body with good thickness and fairly high carbonation. Slight alcohol burn.
Has lost a little of its alcohol bite from this winter, along with a little chocolate. This is still a little on the hot side for a 10% beer, but it's an awesome RIS for the price and one of a handful of beers that I'll buy a case of each year.
