Canned 5/9/2019 and poured into a Carton pint glass. It pours an oily jet black with a half finger of fluffy, light mocha head and creamy lacing. On the nose there is roasted malt, freshly-brewed coffee, soy sauce, and black cherry. There's a lot happening in the taste. It opens with fresh coffee and soy sauce, along with chocolate, and dark fruit, which for me is always welcome in a RIS. I'm tasting black cherry and a hint of raspberry. The soy gives it a bite that balances the sweetness of the coffee and the dark fruit. The flavors blend very well. It has a medium mouth feel; not quite as viscous and creamy as I'd expect in a big stout, with pleasant carbonation. However, there's no escaping the 12.5% ABV. This is a big Stout for sure. Overall, this is an adventuresome Stout as I would expect from Carton. And it's one of their best.
