Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with a monstrous amount of malt and combined with aggressive American hops, this beer is powerful and complex and designed to age. Smokiness is subtle but present and blends nicely with the rich, dark flavors.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

a: pitch black - almost ten fidy black. 3 finger dark tan head with a bunch of little bubbles

s: huge smell, caught it as soon as i opened the bottle. big roasted malt and chocolate aromas here. sweet caramel, figs, and a hint of wood and leather. finishes with a nice smooth, creamy vanilla note. the aroma isn't overly complex, but its so smooth, creamy, rich and inviting. no hint of alcohol in the nose

t: whoa momma. right away you know this is huge. first there is a real nice balance of dark sweet chocolate and smoothly bitter roasted malts. this is followed by a real nice sweetness that comes from the malts, and also a nice dark fruity component. there is a slight earthy bitterness towards the end - but this beer is all about the chocolates and roasted malts. no real taste of the 12+%, but you can definitely feel the alcohol burn in the throat

m: full, for sure. carbonation is there, but minimal

o: this is a giant beer, and definitely a sipper. not the most complex RIS, but its flavors are harmonized well and it drinks smooth. very tasty, and dangerous for its ABV. make sure you sip.
