look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance
Jet black with a dark brown head. Very little head

Smell
Dark chocolate, espresso, a little dark fruit.

Taste
Follows through on the smell but more of a milk chocolate flavor. Middle of the sip is creamy, velvety, Graham cracker and finishes liKe a s'moore.

Mouthfeel
Medium and very low carbonation

Overall
Tis is frickin fantastic. Reminds me of Brooklyn chocolate stout but bigger and creamier. This may be mynfavorite RIS because I love the chocolate in stout and when dark fruits are barely there. A+. I will definitely seek more of this!!!
