A: Very dark, with a thick, creamy, tan head. Beautiful lacing to the end.
S: Dried fruit, caramel, and dark malt.
T: Dominated by malts, with a complex range of roasts all standing out individually and blending well: bready, caramel, toffee, and a hint of vanilla with coffee and chocolate coming through at the end. Perfectly balanced in bitterness and residual sweetness. I couldn't help but think "liquid cake," but not candy-sweet. No hot alcohol at all.
M: Creamy and rich body.
D: Incredibly drinkable for 10% ABV. Could be dangerous ;)
I've never been one for the RIS style, but after this beer has encouraged me to explore the style a lot more. A great beer for cold weather.
