This poured out as a deep black color with a nice brown head on top. The smell has a nice blend of chocolate and bourbon on the nose. The taste of the beer is chocolaty with some oak and a touch of vanilla in there too. The feel of the beer is medium to full bodied. Overall this is a solid brew, was great to finally try it.

2011 bottle, shared with a few buddies on my deck on the eve of Independence Day 2014.

A: Looks great! Black with a nice tan head.

S: mmm - The perfect balance of Bourbon and Chocolate.

T: Delicious! The taste follows the nose. Chocolatey Bourbon goodness.

M: Full bodied but not as thick as some other RIS I have had.

O: This is a great beer. I'm glad I had the opportunity to taste it. Some of the other reviews I've read on here mention slight oxidation. There was no oxidation with this bottle.
