Poured from a 12 oz can (naturally) into a tulip.

A: I was really surprised as to how ridiculously dark this beer is. As I poured it it seemed to have the dark pitch black look of motor oil. There's a nice mocha head that slowly forms to the top of the glass which is about 1 inch in height, but dissipates to about 0.5in, leaving nice lacing. Pretty impressed just by this.

S: Aroma is rich and malty with a bit of smokiness in the background. There's a bit of subtle fruitiness in the background.

T: Follows the smell with a rich malty profile, with some flavours of molasses coming through. Finishes dry with that familiar roasted malt/coffee type with a bit of dark (like >70%) chocolate that I love about a good RIS.

M: I noticed it was a bit thick and heavy whilst pouring it. Mouthfeel definitely follows. Definitely heavy and filling, although the carbonation helps lighten it up a bit.

O: Definitely an expensive brew at about $4 ea, but well worth seeking out if you can. You're going to want to sip this one and never be disappointed.
