12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L: Pitch black, much like coffee. Little to no head, just a slight ring around the top of the stout

S: Fruity and dark scents, dried fruit. Mild coffee scent and some smokiness.

T: Dark maltiness, with a mild smoke and coffee. Coffee does not have the burnt flavor that many porters/stouts have when brewing beer and mixing coffee into the batch.

F: Bold, heavy beer. Mild carbonation, just enough needed to enhance flavor and not make flat.

O: I love this beer. The Russian Imperial version is practically perfect but the standard Rise up is amazing. An excellent use of coffee to enhance flavor and add an extra dimension to what would be a generally good stout by itself.

A: Black in body, with a charcoal/brown head.

S: Amazingly dense and rich coffee aroma. A sea of dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and perhaps the smallest hint of oak.

T: Flavor follows with dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, a touch of booze, perhaps a hint of oatmeal and light wood flavor.

M: Medium heavy with a creamy feel, and low to moderate carbonation.

O: Overall a pretty decent coffee stout, fine work.

Appearance: very dark and unmistakably stout. Aroma: slight coffee but understated. Taste: excellent in the full mouth from beginning to end; the coffee does NOT overpower nor do the hops.. Feel: very smooth, hops present but no hop bite. Overall: one of the finest stouts I have had. Note: this is Not the Russian Imperial version.

I generally prefer Stout beers and this Rise Up nicely delivers on its full-mouthed Stout flavorfulness. As an extra, there is also a - decent - coffee taste. But if the Coffee taste is what you're actually looking for, then I'd recommend that you try an Edmund Fitzgerald Porter.
