Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Label says enjoy by 03/16/14. Whatever.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with an 1/8 inch light brown color that doesn't retain long before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Big dark chocolate notes. Semi-sweet smelling with some caramel, vanilla and a bit of mocha.

T- A tad sweeter than I thought it would be, although the hops bring a bitter aftertaste. More dark chocolate, dark roasted malt and some alcohol flavor.

M- Moderately viscous for an RIS with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- I love all the chocolate I get from this. The sweeter layers of flavors accentuate the chocolate and bring out all the enjoyable qualities of it. Hard to describe, but this is a great RIS albeit sweet for the style.
