Sampled on tap at The Spot in Bethel, CT
Very nice appearance deep black with great lacing on the glass. Pretty typical on the nose nothing great but it hits all the major points chocolate, caramel, dark roasted malts with spicy hops underneath. The taste is nice fairly sweet but well balanced by bitter hops not a typical american RIS it is much more subtle in the hoppiness, which I like. The mouthfeel is nice also, mine was served too cold but as it warmed the fullness and smoothness of this beer began to come through. Drinkability is good also the 10+ abv is well hidden here in a balanced beer, I've had better but this isn't bad

4.19/5 rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into KBS snifter, bottled in 2013. Bottle stored in cellar then briefly refrigerated prior to opening. Pours a beautiful jet black and forms a two inch foamy head that's beige in color. The head ultimately settles into a thin ring around the glass.
The nose is French roast coffee and milk chocolate, quite inviting. There's also a strong roasted malt aroma, followed by a spicy presence that hints of nutmeg. The taste is quite similar to its nose, bitter mocha, sweet molasses and roasted malt, fudge and spicy (chile ancho and nutmeg).
The mouthfeel of this beer is quite pleasant, almost no carbonation present which in my opinion helps savour the beer even better.
Overall - very excited to discover this beer, its quite enjoyable and hides the 10% ABV extremely well. Its sweet yet no overwhelmingly so and all of its flavors are well balanced.
