4.43/5 rDev +6.7%
Pours black with a miniscule tan head that dissipates quickly. The alcohol hits the nose and there's some aroma of roasted malt and chocolate once you get past the alcohol. With 10% ABV, you almost have to expect the alcohol to be forward in the aroma. The alcohol is definitely present in the taste, but one can get the bitterness you would expect with this style as well. The flavors of roasted malt and hops are definitely there as well as chocolate. I'm currently aging some, so it will be interesting to compare after this has had some aging. There isn't much carbonation and the body is medium to heavy. This is a solid beer overall.

A - Pours a complete black probably the darkest beer I've ever had, thick lacing with a nice two inch head and strong retention.
S - Roasted melted chocolate, I don't get any coffee at all in this which doesn't really disappoint me. Seems like some dark fruits in the back too.
T - For 10% this is amazing can't taste the alcohol at all Starts off roasted malts with strong chocolate and finishes with a nice hop bitterness.
M - Heavy bodied really smooth, the beer sticks slightly to the mouth really pleasant with light carbonation.
O - By far the best RIS I've had.
