Bottle from a 4-pack purchased at Wegmans for $9.50. Pours like motor oil into a chalice, opaque black with a 2 finger slightly billowy milk chocolate head that sticks around for a few minutes before receding to a ring around the glass that leaves some pretty nice, albeit spotty, lacing.
Obviously big chocolate notes in the nose, along with the typical dark fruit notes of a RIS, some sweetness, a little alcohol.
Milk chocolate sweetness and brown sugar hit the tongue first, segueing nicely into rum soaked figs and raisins, molasses, and an earthy, floral hope note. Finishes with some bitter bakers chocolate and a small hop bite and slight heat, but for the abv, the alcohol is pretty well hidden.
Rich and chewy, low carbonation. Spot on for the style.
I picked up a 4-pack of this for the first time in a couple years, and I'm picking all types of things I wouldn't have noticed 2 years ago. Just goes to show how ever changing our palettes are when it comes to this thing of ours. A super solid RIS, very rich and creamy, great flavors all around. Next time I won't wait 2 years to buy this again.
