On tap into a goblet at The Birch in Norfolk.

A: Poured with an immaculate amount of dark mocha colored head that stuck around seemingly forever. Was pitch black in the body. Just gorgeous

S: Simply put, I was not even attempting to smell it and the smell made its way to my nose while I was waiting for the head to dissipate. Smells like milk chocolate, hazelnuts, sweet dark fruits.

T: Tastes like it smells. More dark chocolate but absolutely no bite or heat to it at all. Also has a fresh, sweet nut flavor in the after taste to accent the chocolate flavors. Little plum and maple.

M: Full bodied, creamy. The head was extremely creamy and for a 9.5% beer, this complimented it very well.

O: I loved this RIS, it was easy drinking and at 9.5% ABV, I could still probably drink 2-3 of these in a sitting. It is definately a sipper but doesnt fill you up and it hides the alcohol better than any stout I've ever tasted to include FIS, FBS, Stone RIS and the likes. Highyl recommended (on tap at least...cant speak for bottles)

Rich, smoky aroma has notes of coffee, licorice and molasses with a hint of dark chocolate. It pours a deep, opaque sable just a couple red tomcat whiskers above black and with a fairly thick tan head that leaves some respectable lacing. Mouth-filling smoky flavor has chocolate, coffee, licorice and molasses tones plus hints of caramel, horehound and miso. Firm-bodied texture has a decent amount of fizz and leaves a nice smoky finish that has hints of licorice, molasses and burnt malt. How ’bout them Swedes!

Very dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Roasted malts, tons of roasted and brewed coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate. Smoothish mouthfeel with a coffee bitter aftertaste. Damn good.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick texture. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. No real lacing to speak of.

S: A big aroma of coffee, malt, and chocolate as well.

T: Tasted of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, maybe a little vanilla, and a burnt quality, too. This is a complex and interesting flavor. Not quite as robust as most RISs, but very tasty.

M: A good amount of carbonation with an overly slick finish. Full-bodied.

O: This is a solidly made, very enjoyable and drinkable stout.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Deep purple with lighter purple hues at the top and bottom. No head

Smell: Amazing coffee aroma which is accompanied by some oak vanilla and chocolate

Taste: Kind of a funky roasted malt taste that transitions into a backend that is loaded with chocolate and just a ever so slight hint of vanilla

Mouthfeel: Very full bodied with a velvety smoothness to it and low carbonation

Overall: Very pleased with this beer. The only thing for me that doesn't make this an excellent beer is that initial funk on the flavor. Apart from that this beer is damn near as good as a RIS gets

A - Pours pretty darned black, tan head, some cling lace.

S - Malt, coffee, a little dishtowel.

T - Extremely malty, coffee, booze pretty well hidden, softer overall than I would have thought.

M - Creamy, almost phlegmy, syrupy, heavy body, good carb and balance considering.

D - A sipper for the winter. Very nice.
