smells like most stouts do, except i'm getting an algae kind of aroma off the top. some chocolate, very smooth; nice properties but the algae smell has me leery. very slight bitterness, but the dark chocolate and slight espresso dominate. overall a decent brew and a decent abv.... toward the end of the bottle the algae seemed to not be as strong....

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

appearance: Very dark ruby. Thick frothy tan head.
smell: "medium" rich. Some chocolate roastiness typical of an RIS. Mostly dry with a bit of sweetness.
taste: Much like the nose, typical RIS malty roastiness. A slightly bitter finish.
overall: Not bad, not great. Pleasant enough sipper but honestly won't be seeking this out again.
