Pours a black as night with a fluffy two inch tan head that resembles whipped cream, lots of lacing.
Exactly what an RIS should look like.
The aroma is outstanding, dark chocolate, roasted malt
Taste, Oh ya! chocolate, charcoal, bitter chocolate and is that a hint of hops? I think so!
Alcohol is subdued to the point of nonexistence.
Creamy and tight carbonation make every sip a pleasure, what a nice stout.
