Had some samples of this at the 4th Annual Magic City Brewfest in Birmingham, AL so I'll try to remember as best I can. Poured a heavy, inky black that smelled of dark fruits such as plums and cherries, port wine and chocolate. The taste was similar as the aroma and is one of the best RIS I've ever had. A delicious beer even on a hot Alabama day and I can't wait to try this one again.
