Bottle into tulip

Appearance- jet black, half finger tan head, very good lacing.

Aroma- roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, some chocolate, char. some alcohol as it warms very nice

Flavor-roasted malt, dark fruit, coffee, rich robust, some alcohol, complex

Mouthfeel- Medium, maybe a little thin for the style, but smooth, alcohol warmth

Overall- Very nice, a cult standard RIS, new to the style? try this, remains a go to RIS for me, although there are better out there, I return to this a lot.
