look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22 oz bottle poured into Vault 16 oz oversized snifter.

Black motor oil pour with a thin dark khaki head which dissipates quickly into a rim around the edge.

Roasty toasted malt, vanilla, cacao, caramel, alcohol, dark fruits, coffee

Malty and toasted, sweetness, vanilla, chocolate, bitter hops, coffee, figs, pretty much to the smell.

Feel is full, sticky and chewy, really great body for a stout. A tad high on the carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall, a solid enjoyable RIS, nothing special to the point of being on anyone's top 10 lists, but for $9 and available year round this is a very solid option. Definitely one of the blackest stouts I've seen in a while.
