Pours an ink black with a lovely two finger thick creamy tan head. Smell is dominated by big roasted malt flavors but that is just a hint of rubbing alcohol that makes your nostrils flair like wasabi every now and then. Tastes pretty much like is smells... big chunky roasted malt with a dry alcoholic finish. Definitely full bodies but at the same time not to the normal extent that you expect from a RIS. Overall, overly alcoholic (even for an RIS) despite only the 8% and a little uni-dimensional. Far from not worth trying however... what is there is quite good.
