12oz Bottle from the Wegman's in Syracuse
Appearance - Black colour with a small size fizzy dark beige head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for around 2 minutes.
Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and caramel. There is also some nice notes of dark fruit.. raisins, cherries, plums and a bit of a smokiness. It ends with chocolatey sweet aftertaste with just a hint of bitterness.
Overall - I really enjoyed this one. The alcohol is well hidden and that flavours are well balanced and smooth. The dark fruit flavour and low bitterness make this one of the better RIS's I've had to date.
