Notes/Commercial Description:
Deep mahogany in color with aromas of roasted coffee, molasses and dark chocolate. Subtly hopped, making it astonishingly smooth and easy drinking for such a big beer.

Best by date JUN 30-14
Aggressively poured in to a DHF signature glass.

A: Deep mahogany with a 1 finger tan head. No lacing to speak of. The head acted more like a soda than a Russian Imperial Stout, loudly fizzing away as quickly as it appeared.

S: Slightly metallic, roasted coffee with a hint of ash tray. Reminded me of Dunkin Donuts coffee.

T: Similar to the nose with the addition of dark fruit and stale Coke. Very flat
.
MF: Thin with a dry aftertaste, not encouraging me to take another sip.

O: This beer did not fit the category. It is lacking the weight and complexity or a RIS.
Heavy Seas makes some good beer, but I think they missed the mark with this one or Oskar Blues and Founders set the bar to high. Either way I hope Siren Noire treats me better. I have bottle waiting for me in the fridge.
