Pours black. Short, foamy, Brown had that last a little while.

Smells roasted malts, chocolate, light smoke, Char and a hint of dark fruit.

Taste roasted malts, bitter chocolate, molasses, light espresso, light Char and smoke. Finishes dry with a roast and Smokey linger. Medium body and smooth lower carbonation.

Look: Opaque black with a thick mocha colored head.

Smell: Fruity. Dark cherries, black malt, dark chocolate, rich espresso, and fruit leather.

Taste: Much like the nose only way more subtle. Dark chocolate, roasty black malt, chocolate covered dark cherries, light vanilla, and fruit leather.

Feel: Smooth and creamy given the ABV. Big bodied. Medium bitterness. Alcohol is apparent but smooth.

Overall: A good stout that is just too subtle in flavor. I wanted more of anything. All the flavors are right I just want something to come forward.

Pitch black in color with a fingernail of brown around the rim and covering most of the top. Light lacing is present. The aroma is of dark roasted barley. I'm tasting plenty of roasted barley, dark chocolate with a lightly boozy finish. The mouth is velvety smooth.

22 oz bomber, January 2018, poured into a tulip glass. Didn't feel like waiting. Pitch black, two finger tan head that retains well, recedes slowly. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, and mild smoke. The taste follows the nose closely, with some anise, some dark fruits, and a bitter finish (coffee/espresso like). The mouthfeel is medium heavy, with a midrange amount of carbonation to keep things lively. Everything smooths out some as it warms, and I get some more of the toffee notes mentioned on the bottle. Overall, a pretty tasty RIS. It doesn't overwhelm you with sweetness or too much roast, which at times, can be a good thing.
