A. Very aggressive poor into a 36oz mug, 4 inches of tan/brown head that dissipates to 2 ½ inches. The dance of the bubbles in the black sludge looks delicious. No carbonation. Color is black with hints of brown.
S. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and alcohol.
T. Sweet, metallic, coffee, chocolate, alcohol. After taste of grilled chocolate and nutty.
M. Slightly carbonated, milky, syrup, watery.
O. Slightly below average for an RIS. Alcohol is very evident and slightly over powering. But still good, give it a try.
