look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: black motor oil - didn't even kick up much head - maybe a slim finger of smooth, creamy-looking dark foam off a center pour

S: rich, sweet dark malts, roasty and bitter cocoa and coffee, some herbal and earthy aromas

T: bittersweet dark malts and sweet black coffee; suggestions of herb and anise; some blackstrap molasses and mocha; some mineral-esque qualities

M: creamy, smooth, dense, full-to-medium body; slick

O: a nice RIS, with a very earthy and grainy profile, which I liked - luxurious and decadent, yes, but with a rustic tone and traditional vibe
