Came in a goblet nearly jet black but I did notice a bit of a brownish/red colored tint when in a more lighted space,a thinner but pretty well sustained deep beige head atop.Bourbon soaked dark fruits,roasted coffee,and more of a bitter chocolate element.The bourbon barrel plays a big role on the palate bringing sweetness and a vanilla tinge to dark fruits,more chocolate came in as I drank more along a bit of roast.The sweetness gets pretty big after awhile as the bourbon and dark fruit flavors really command a presence but it's a rich decadent stout so everything flows pretty well for what it is.

2017 release, on draft at Foothills. Cacao nibs, honey, floral hops and vinous grapes on the nose. Aggressive and sharp on the palate, from the tannic notes and dry bitterness of the base RIS's. Complex as it warms, but a bit muddled, as the three stouts compete more than they harmonize.

2017 Vintage
I can't get over how good the beer is. Its got the biscuit flavors reminiscent of Event Horizon and the Chocolaty goodness of Sexual Chocolate. The barrel treatment is much more balanced than Event Horizon. Reminds me a lot of ANTEAD. Pure fudgy, bourbon soaked, chocolate goodness.
