Came out jet black with a good size mocha head with lots of lacing in it.s wake. A wonderful aroma of roasted malts and coffee and dark chocolates greeted me. Taste was as in the nose with a deeply roasted taste followed with some coffee and espresso notes.
Easy drinking and smooth despite the heavy ashen feel.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This is a great beer. And it's just dying to be aged out. Great malt tones, nice chocolate, very mild roasted tones. Extremely thick, but not obnoxiously so. Great feel. This is really a spectacular beer. Hits exactly what an ris should be. I wouldn't mind having more of this to age.
