Poured into tulip glass

A-Black w/ 3/4 inch mocha head. Thick lacing

S-Chocolate, dark fruits, raisins, sweet coffee, slight anise

T-notice the anise at first then fades as chocolate takes over. Alcohol is present but not over powering given the 10% ABV, roasty, sligthly smoky, some vanilla flavors are well balanced

M-Thick, thick full bodied beer that is full of flavor

O-Great tasting thick balanced beer with great mouthfeel exectly what one would expect from a well made RIS

I had Fidy a long time ago, before I really understood stouts. Figured I better try it again!

Pours a jet black, with a chocolate foam. Thick liquid, leaves a lot of lacing on the sides of mysnifter. Great looking beer.

Smell is a bit more subdued thah I thought, mostly chocolate and coffee, with a bit of tar and caramel.

Taste is magnificent. Roasted coffee and chocolate dominate the palate, with a bit of tar and licqurice hiding in the background. Hugely complex, the taste stays on the tongue for ages.

Thick and creamy, really smooth and elegant. Nice level of carbonation.

Overall, this is a classic, and it's easy to see why. Huge taste, with a lot of depth to find, and great mouthfeel. Will be interesting to try the barrel aged version.
