12oz. poured into a snifter. Best by 7/28/09, though I am sure this can age more even longer than that.
(A)- Pours opaque black. Big head formed and dissipated down to a light layer of dense light brown suds. Some sticky lacing here and there.
(S)- Lots of roasted dark chocolate on the nose. Its like a rich mocha only more chocolate in the ratio compared to espresso. Some raisin aromas mixed into it as well.
(T)- Really strong in the roasted malt which oozes dark chocolate. The raisins are in there too.
(M)- Thick, but not super thick. Full-bodied. Sweet and bitter at the same time with a good carbonation level.
(D)- This RIS is simple, straightforward, yet decadent. Chocolate lovers unite! Super sweet and super roasted. A for sure sipper that could replace any dessert involving chocolate. The few extra months this had in the bottle since it was put in there over this past winter did wonders for it! If you have any of this, its really good right now in my opinion! However brace yourselves, this is not for the weak minded.
