Pours a dark brown, not quite black with a thick finger and a half of fluffy tan head. Surprisingly, there is little retention in the head and only a trace of lacing on the glass. Nice roast in the nose and a modest sweet note as well. Stout bitterness combines with the smooth and silky body of a classic RIS. There is definitely some mild chocolate notes present as well as a hint of raisins and other dark fruits. The finish is roasty and bitter with only a trace of alcohol present. This is a complex offering that hides its powerful 10.50% ABV very well. Tasty and dangerous!

WOW!!! Poured black as tar with a beautiful two-finger milk chocolate head, which receded quickly. Smells of sweet malt and a bit of chocolate. Taste is fairly complex, much like the aroma. Subtle chocolate, some molasses, maybe pumpkin skin bitterness. Not as extreme as BCBS and such, but definitely not a “standard” stout. Nice medium mouthfeel for a stout, but somewhat creamy. Very balanced…a real winner.
